BEND, Ore. (AP) - The Deschutes County prosecutor has closed a 2-year-old case by announcing that a man who shot an intruder won’t be charged.

KTVZ-TV reports https://bit.ly/1CUXb6e ) that District Attorney John Hummel held a news conference Thursday about the killing of 33-year-old Shane Munoz.

On June 24, 2012, Kevin Perry and his girlfriend returned to Perry’s home to find the front door smashed in and Munoz asleep on the couch.

Hummel, new in the office, said he reviewed the case for five weeks and agreed with investigators who concluded Perry shot Munoz in self-defense. Hummel says tests showed all three people were “extremely intoxicated.”

He said investigators don’t know why Munoz was in the house, but burglary wasn’t a motive. He said investigators found no links between the couple and Munoz.
