Omaha, NE (AP) - No charges will be filed against an Omaha homeowner who shot and killed a 19-year-old after he broke into the home.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said Monday that 66-year-old Ronald Green's actions were justified because he feared for his life.

Authorities say Ramon Matlock broke into Green's home in northeast Omaha around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Kleine says Matlock swung at Green and landed a glancing blow before Green fired his gun. Matlock was struck twice and died in Green's front yard.

Green called 911 after the shooting and asked for paramedics. His gun is properly licensed.
