LA: Police: No charges expected in self-defense shooting death

No charges are expected to be filed against a man who fatally shot an intruder trying to force his way into his residence late Saturday, Baton Rouge police said Tuesday.

The resident, Kurt Anderson, exchanged gunfire with Anthony Taylor, a 20-year-old man who tried to break into the home at 3875 Topeka St., police said.

Police Lt. Don Kelly said Anderson had not been expecting anyone late Saturday night and armed himself with a handgun before opening the door for Taylor.

Taylor, the only person struck in the exchange of gunfire, ran and collapsed a short distance away, Kelly said.

Officers responding to reports of shots fired at 11:45 p.m. found Taylor’s body near Geronimo and Mohican streets, police have said. Taylor’s gun was located next to him, police said.
