COVINGTON, La. (AP) - A southeast Louisiana prosecutor says a man who shot and killed an attacker at a convenience store won’t be prosecutor, because he was protecting himself.

St. Tammany Parish District Attorney Warren Montgomery says Mandeville police found that the man had the registered gun legally holstered in plain view, and the other man - 42-year-old Shawn Breland of Folsom - was the aggressor.

Neither police nor Montgomery have identified the man who shot Breland.

NOLA.com ‘ The Times-Picayune reports (https://bit.ly/27WLkof ) that the incident occurred April 4 at a Shell gas station and store.

Police say Breland was ordered out after calling the clerk racial slurs and berating him, but returned several times, getting more aggressive each time. Police say Breland attacked the other customer after he followed Breland out to get his license plate number.
