BEND, Ore. (AP) - The wrongful death lawsuit against an Awbrey Butte man who shot and killed an apparent intruder will go forward.

The wrongful death lawsuit seeks more than $500,000 in the death of 33-year-old Shane Munoz.

The Bulletin reports (https://is.gd/TKkSkQ ) that Deschutes County Circuit Judge Stephen Fort on Thursday declined to dismiss the suit against Kevin Perry, who shot Munoz in 2012.

Perry and Amanda Weinman had arrived at Perry’s home to find Munoz, a stranger to both of them, asleep on the couch. Perry told police he grabbed a gun and shot Munoz after the intruder attacked him.

A Deschutes County District Attorney in February found Perry to be justified in the shooting.

The lawsuit claims that Munoz hadn’t posed a threat to Perry or Weinman.
