Police have identified the suspect who was shot and killed during a home invasion over the weekend as a 14-year-old boy.

Police responded to the shooting around 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, at a home in the 2400 block of Moulton Dr.

The suspect, identified now as Keontre Reese, was shot and killed by Oklahoma City Pastor Tom Vineyard, after Vineyard came home and interrupted the burglary while it was still in progress.

In a press release issued Tuesday afternoon, police say Vineyard and Reese got involved in a physical altercation inside of the home. During the struggle, Vineyard shot and killed Reese.

Vineyard has been a pastor at Windsor Hills since 2007. The church is known as a staunch supporter of gun rights and has faced criticism for training youth to use firearms.
