No charges expected in self-defense shooting death

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - No charges are expected to be filed against a man who fatally shot an intruder trying to force his way into his home over the weekend.

Baton Rouge police say Kurt Anderson exchanged gunfire with 20-year-old Anthony Taylor, who tried to break into the home.

Police Lt. Don Kelly says Anderson had not been expecting anyone late Saturday night and armed himself with a handgun before opening the door for Taylor.

Kelly says Taylor, the only person struck in the exchange of gunfire, ran and collapsed a short distance away.
