FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A prosecutor says a 23-year-old man won’t be charged in a fatal shooting in Casselton.
Cass County State’s Attorney Birch Burdick says the man who was arrested in Friday’s shooting felt threatened by the other man and was acting in self-defense.
Cass County sheriff’s deputies responded to the shooting Friday about 9:30 p.m. in Casselton.
Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner says the 23-year-old man was in fear of his life when 50-year-old Duane Turchin got out of his car, argued with the man and choked him.
The younger man then shot Turchin. He called 911 and placed his gun in a safe.
