AL: Neighbor shooting was justified

In a world without guns, bullies dominate others.

A 58-year-old Irondale man will not face criminal charges in the February shooting death of one of his neighbors.

The Jefferson County District Attorney's Office ruled the fatal shooting of 50-year-old Michael Robertson justifiable. Irondale Detective Michael Mangina said he received word today about the decision.


The homeowner multiple times in the past had warned Robertson to stay off his property. Robertson was suspected of stealing from the homeowner and others in the neighborhood, Mangina said.
