GREEN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Wabash Valley shooting was justified as self defense.
Last Saturday, police say a fight between Michael Gallagher and Jarrett Nicholson ended when Nicholson was shot and killed.
In a press release sent to News 10 by the Greene County Prosecutor's office during a 911 call, Gallagher said Nicholson entered his residence without permission, threatened to kill him, and then began to beat him.
Gallagher told authorities he then shot Nicholson in the chest in self defense. Nicholson was pronounced dead at Greene County Hospital.
No charges will be filed in this case.
Good outcome, but too bad that he was initially charged with murder and I imagine he ran up some legal costs, lost wages, etc.
