SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Police have identified the alleged robber who was killed by a homeowner Sunday night. His name is Devon Antonio Young - a sixteen year-old who lived in Shreveport.
Police say the teen barged into her home carrying a shotgun and demanding money out of the safe."And as I was unlocking the safe and I prayed to God to give me strength, to get through this, it'll be me or him," said the woman.
"And that's when I fired my gun and hit him with the first round," said
the victim of a home invasion in the 3000 block of Morningside Drive in
She says when she realized she only had coins in the safe she began fearing for her own life , the life of her granddaughter, and great grandson.
The terrified 63 year-old grandmother and great grandmother doesn't want to be identified. She tells KSLA News 12 she got the drop on the alleged robber when she distracted him by handing him the bag of money with one hand. With the other hand, she says she shot the sixteen year- old in the chest.
She says this is the second time the young man robbed her in her own home. The last time this happened she says he stole her gun and some money. But she bought another gun.
This time when the shotgun wielding man reportedly barged into her home, her gun was in the safe – a tactical advantage she would use without even thinking.
"And I said here you go, and he let go of one hand off his gun, because it was pointed right at me, and reached for the bag of coins, and that's when I fired my gun, and hit him with the first round," said the woman.She says after a brief struggle, he ran.
Police found the young man a short distance away from the home after he had collapsed. He was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
"55 dollars in coins, and he lost his life," said the tearful woman. She says her heart goes out to his family, and that she never intended to kill the young man.
Police say through their investigation they were able to link the teenager to another robbery from a few weeks ago at the same address.
The woman is not being charged. Police say the investigation is ongoing.
