Homeowner Stops Burglar

The Norman Transcript - Moore homeowner shoots suspected burglar Seems a pretty straight-forward case of self-defense to me.
According to court documents, a man and woman were in the bedroom of their home ..., when they heard a loud crashing sound. The man grabbed his pistol and went into the living room to find the front door had been kicked open.
In a confrontation, the burglar "reached for his waistband." The homeowner shot him. The goblin said he didn't want to go back to prison. (Could he have not gone back to a life of crime?)
[The bad guy in this story] has 11 prior convictions, including two burglaries, larceny, car thefts and escape from a penitentiary, according to Department of Corrections records. He has been incarcerated from 1991 to 1993 and from 1994 to 2005, records show.
He is charged with first-degree burglary.
