Are you automatically going to be arrested?
No. In the state of OK the police may not arrest a person who has shot another person in a home invasion shooting unless police have probable cause the shooter has broken the law.

G. A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force, but the law enforcement agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.

The vast majority of home invasion shootings in OK are not prosecuted. Our former prosecutor declined to prosecute one "stand your ground" killing and two home invasion killings in a 18 month period.

This lady was not prosecuted. LEOs bought her a shotgun to replace the one taken as evidence.
