LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old Lincoln man shot in self-defense last year by the father of his ex-girlfriend has pleaded no contest to making terroristic threats.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/1eLP7G7) that Jeffery Stotler Jr. pleaded no contest Friday in Lancaster County District Court. He faces up to five years in prison when he’s sentenced in May.

Authorities say a 50-year-old Bennet man shot Stotler last year with a .22-caliber rifle after Stotler kicked in the man’s back door. Police say Stotler had attacked the man’s 18-year-old daughter, left, then came back and kicked in the door.

Prosecutors determined Stotler was shot in self-defense.
