An Algiers homeowner appears to have turned the tables on a would-be armed robber, with deadly results.
According to New Orleans Police, a man and his wife were on the back patio of their home on West Homestead Drive in Algiers when a masked gunman walked into their backyard and demanded money. Police say the masked man ordered the couple to take him into their home, where their daughters, ages 6, 13 and 14, were inside.
Once inside, police say the husband was able to retrieve his own gun, and shoot and fatally injure the intruder. The gunman was pronounced dead on the scene.
No one else was hurt in the incident. Police recovered both weapons and say the investigation continues.
