Law enforcement officers in Marion, Arkansas, say a woman in her late 80s shot and killed a 19-year-old intruder Sunday morning around 3:30 a.m.

The 19-year-old, Cody Smith, allegedly “advanced toward” the woman and ignored her warnings to stop.

According to WREG, the Crittenden County Sheriff’s Office said they received a call from an home alarm company after an burglary alarm sounded at 3:31 a.m. When deputies arrived on scene the woman told them Smith had “forcefully entered” her home.

Smith died from his gunshot wounds.

Neighbor’s said Smith lived in a home nearby, but not in the neighborhood where the home intrusion occurred. John Rimmer said, “We heard he was under the influence of something and wrecked his car. At first it was told that he thought he was walking to his house. I didn’t know where his house is, in this neighborhood I assume.”

Fox13 reports that Smith had graduated from Marion High School just “months ago.”
