A U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent shot and killed Robert Young in her Pinecrest home early Monday, February 12, 2018 police said.

Sgt. Carlos Rosario, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department, said the woman woke up around 1 a.m. to the sound of a sliding-glass door breaking and found 29-year-old Robert Young entering the home in the 9300 block of Southwest 72nd Avenue. 

Rosario said the federal agent got her gun and fired several shots, killing Young.

CBP officials confirmed that the woman used her government-issued .40-caliber Smith & Wesson gun in the shooting. 

"At this time, we have no indication that she knew the intruder," Rosario said.

The identity of the Border Protection official has not been released.

Rosario didn't say whether Young had a gun, how many times he was shot or how long the woman has worked for Customs and Border Protection.
