Police: Charleston woman shot at teens who tried to rob her at gunpoint

An Ashley Avenue woman told police she fired her gun at two teens who tried to rob her at her home Wednesday night.

Charleston police responded to the woman's home at 1311 Ashley Ave. about 10:20 p.m. and found several bullet holes in the wall and window, according to an incident report.

The woman told detectives she was getting out of her car with her child in her arms when two teens with guns approached her from the rear of the apartment building.

The teens ordered her into the house. Once she was inside, she ran into her bedroom, put her child on the bed and grabbed her gun, the report says.

She walked into the living room where the teens were standing and started shooting, prompting the teens to run out the door.

No one has been arrested, Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said.

The first suspect is described as a black male, 6-foot and 150 pounds.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-7 and 140 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Charleston police at 743-7200.
