Police say that a Louisiana grandmother is not being charged after fatally shooting a 16-year-old intruder who broke into her home. The woman was defending her life and the life of her loved one’s when she pulled the trigger.
The woman, who wishes not to be identified, was sitting at home with her granddaughter and great grandson when the shotgun wielding intruder barged into the house. But this was not the first time this young man had robbed the woman.
Once before this same intruder had stolen some items from her house, including her gun and some money. But fortunately, the woman bought another gun, not to be deterred from her 2nd amendment rights and the ability to protect her family.
The armed teen demanded money from the woman’s safe, and the woman feared for her life because she knew the safe only had a few coins. But the safe was also the place where she kept her gun.
“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.
She felt that once the thief found out there was hardly any money in the safe he would have killed her and her granddaughter and her great grandson.
The woman said that she took advantage of the situation when the robber was distracted after she handed him the bag of money.
“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.
The robber was hit in the chest with the bullet, but was still able to stumble away from the home. He collapsed not far from the home and was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
“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.
This is yet another case of a defensive gun use that will most assuredly also be used by Michael Bloomberg in his statistics on children being killed by guns.
