BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - No charges will be filed against a Boulder man who shot and killed a University of Colorado student who broke into his house.

Citing Colorado’s Make My Day law, District Attorney Stan Garnett said Wednesday the homeowner was justified when he shot 19-year-old Robert Zamora on May 4.

Police say Zamora banged on a window at a home where a man and a woman were watching television. The homeowner says he retrieved his handgun before Zamora came around to the front of the house, shattered a glass storm door and burst inside.

Police say Zamora then attacked the resident and they began fighting on the floor. The resident shot Zamora once in the chest, saying he feared for his life.

Garnett tells The Daily Camera (https://goo.gl/JfmxsX ) Zamora is suspected of being on drugs at the time, specifically “psychedelic” mushrooms.
