Prosecutor Says Shooting At Royalton Home Was Self-Defense

A Vermont prosecutor says a non-fatal shooting at a Royalton, Vermont  home was in self-defense and no charges will be filed against the man who fired the shot.
The decision by the Windsor County State’s Attorney’s office was announced Tuesday by the Vermont State Police.

An investigation found that the April 15 shooting occurred when Nicholas Schultz, who had been living at the home where the shooting took place, left with a firearm and returned shortly afterward while still carrying the weapon. Schultz failed to comply with commands from the homeowner, Jason Farina, to put down his weapon. Farina fired his own gun, wounding Schultz.
