WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Police in North Carolina say they won’t charge a man who fatally shot someone trying to rob him during a botched drug deal.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports that Lt. Gregory Dorn said 25-year-old Charvez Kent Brown went to a home on Tuesday to sell 22-year-old Danielle Miller marijuana. However, Dorn says the potential buyer, along with 22-year-old Ajian Lynell Jones and 19-year-old Andres Harris, tried to rob Brown. The newspaper says Brown ran away but the three began shooting at him. He was wounded and returned fire, also wounding the others.

Police say Jones later died from his injuries.

Dorn said Brown acted in self-defense and won’t face any charges. Jones’ death has been ruled a justifiable homicide.

Miller and Harris both face several firearms, assault and robbery charges.
