Followup CA:Antioch Shooting Ruled Self-Defense
ANTIOCH -- New details have surfaced on authorities' decision not to file criminal charges in the February shooting death of a San Ramon man, but the victim's family continues to dispute that it was an act of self-defense.
Demarco Childs, 31, was shot at least four times at a Chevron gas station on Feb. 13. He died in a hospital two days later. A coroner's report released in June says Childs was shot with his own handgun, after getting into an argument with a man with whom he had a history and displaying the gun at his waistband, leading to a struggle where the other man grabbed the weapon.
