OR: Shooting of Tresspasser Deemed Justified

The Jackson County District Attorney's office announced the decision not to press charges against a 79-year-old man who shot and killed a man he assumed to be trespassing on a neighbor's property. The DA's office said the man was acting in reasonable self-defense because he believed the trespasser, 65-year-old Brian Patrick Arnold, had a gun, when in fact, the object in his jacket was a flashlight.

The state said they were not able to disprove Bradley's self-defense claim because Bradley's testimony was more reliable than the other eye-witness in the incident, who said Bradley fired without cause.
