BLANCHARD, Oklahoma --  One man is dead and second suspect is in custody following a home invasion near Blanchard Saturday afternoon.

Police say two men attempted to break into a woman's home in the 2200 block of  County Road 1280.  The woman was able to barricade the door with a couch, but the suspects gained entry.  One of the suspects was armed with a knife.

Police say the woman, a mother with a three-month-old baby, shot the knife-wielding suspect dead with a shotgun.  The second suspect fled and called his parents who turned him over to police.

Blanchard police have asked the OSBI to assist with the investigation, but say it appears the woman was trying to protect her baby and herself.

Police have not yet released the identities of the suspects or the woman.
