Gun Store Employee Will Face No Charges After Shooting Man

Last updated on Tuesday, September 25, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Prosecutors in Indianapolis said a gun store employee who fatally shot a customer who had shot him first acted in self-defense under Indiana law and won’t face charges.

A spokeswoman for the Marion County Prosecutor's Office said Monday that it made the decision after reviewing video surveillance evidence and statements from employees and another customer in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Brian Wayner.

Owner Don Davis of Don's Guns and Galleries has identified the employee as Ben Chance. Chance was critically wounded but is expected to recover.

Davis has said Chance was shot after presenting the customer with his bill for using a shooting range.
