GREEN VALLEY - The Pima County Attorney's Office has announced that charges will not be filed against the man who fatally shot his neighbor during a domestic violence incident last Saturday.
A domestic dispute in Green Valley left one man dead on August 4. According to Pima County Sheriff Department, the shooting happened in the 400 block of W. Apero Drive at around around 2:30 a.m.
The 28-year-old man and his girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute earlier in the evening, according to sheriff's officials. The girlfriend was able to escape to a neighbor's house, and the boyfriend forced his way into that house, says the Sheriff's Department.
The man then forced his girlfriend out of that house and into his car. When the neighbor came out of the house, the girlfriend was able to escape again and ran off.
The Sheriff's Department states the neighbor fired a weapon, apparently striking the man. He was able to get into a vehicle and drive off, but crashed shortly after leaving the scene. Law enforcement found the man and rendered aid, but he was pronounced dead.
The Pima County Attorney's Office confirmed today that charges would not be filed against the neighbor who fatally shot the man.
