BATON ROUGE – Deputies say a homeowner shot and killed an armed robber at a home on Glenlea Ave. Tuesday. 

The shooting happened around 12 p.m. Tuesday in the 7700 block of Glenlea Avenue. The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office says 19-year-old Terione Williams pushed his way inside a home and robbed the occupants at gunpoint.

The victim allegedly retrieved his gun and fired shots at Williams. Once hit, Williams fled on foot and died from his injuries a short distance from the victim's home.

Williams was previously arrested in 2012 in connection to another armed robbery in Baton Rouge.

Forest Heights Academy, a nearby elementary school, was briefly put in lockdown after the shooting.
