BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) -- Police say they have arrested a woman suspected of driving the vehicle used by three men who were attempting to rob a home and were shot to death by the homeowner's son.

Wagoner County Deputy Nick Mahoney said Tuesday that 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez of Oologah was arrested on murder and burglary warrants after going to police and saying she had information about the shooting at a home just east of the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow.

Mahoney didn't know if Rodriguez has an attorney.

Mahoney says the three were shot to death with an AR-15 rifle after breaking into the home Monday afternoon.

Police said two of the intruders were juveniles and another was an adult, according to KJRH-TV.

Those intruders were identified as Maxwell Cook, 19, Jacob Redfern, 17, and 16-year-old Jaykob Woodriff.

Mahoney said it appears the shooting was in self-defense and that brass knuckles and a knife were found in the dead men's possession.
