Grandma with gunSHREVEPORT, LA  – Police say 16-year-old Devon Antonio pushed his luck too far when he decided to rob a 63-year-old woman a second time, and ended up dead after the woman shot him in the chest.

Police say the teen broke into the woman’s home carrying a shotgun and demanding money from her safe. The woman said she recognized Antonio as the same person who robbed her of some money and a gun just a few weeks prior.

She said she feared for her life because the teen was pointing a shotgun at her demanding money, and she knew her safe only contained around $55 dollars in coins.

“As I was unlocking the safe I prayed to God to give me strength, to get through this, it’ll be me or him,” she said.

It is said that God helps those who helps themselves, and this woman helped herself tremendously when she replaced the gun stolen previously and had made the decision to store it inside the safe. She removed the gun from the safe with one hand while taking the bag of coins with the other.

While handing Antonio teen the bag of coins, the teen lowered his gun to take it. That’s when the woman shot Antonio once in the chest.

“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.

The teen ran from the home but was found a short distance away where he’d collapsed and died for $55. Police said they were able to confirm the woman’s story and link Antonio to the previous robbery at her home.

They do not plan on filing charges against the woman who said her heart goes out to Antonio’s family.
