16 yo trys to rob 63 yo woman second time gets hot lead

Shreveport grandmother who fatally shot teen intruder: "I prayed to God to give me strength"
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 Shreveport.

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.
