Police ID teens in fatal Mobile shooting

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A 60-year-old man defending himself in a robbery attempt in his driveway on Halloween night faced no immediate charges in the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy and the wounding of another teen.

Deputy Police Chief James Barber said the two teens were shot Friday after they apparently followed their victim to his home from an automatic teller machine and used a handgun in the robbery attempt.

The victim pulled his own weapon and fired. Barber said Antonio Austin was killed and 19-year-old Robert Howez was shot in the back.

He was in fair condition Tuesday at the University of South Alabama Medical Center.

Barber said both teens attended Vigor High School. The robbery victim's name was not released. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
