    A Virginia woman says she shot down a drone after she spotted the device flying over her famous next door neighbor Robert Duvall's house and it veered onto her land.

    Jennifer Youngman said she was cleaning two guns on her front porch in Fauquier County when she saw two men park in front of the actor's home. 

    The men set up a table and began operating the drone over "The Godfather" star's property.

    The device buzzed about 75 feet in the air and disturbed his cows, Youngman said.

    But when the men appeared to have lost control of the drone, Youngman took action.

    “They were going a little too fast and they went over my airspace," she told The Fauquier Times, which was first to report the story. "I had my .20-gauge there, so I put two 71/2 birdshot shells in it, and there you are.”

    Youngman, who said she does a lot of clay shooting, took down the drone with a single shot, she said.

    The men were angry but fled when Youngman threatened to call police.

    “They were kinda mad, but they knew to not come on my property,” she told the Times about the incident, which she said occurred a few weeks ago.

    The Fauquier County Sheriff's Office said no one had filed a criminal complaint related to the incident. Police said they had not heard from the men with the drone.
