SHREVEPORT, La. — 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.
