OMAHA, Neb. Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said no charges will be filed against a homeowner who fatally shot a 19-year-old man investigators said broke into the residence Saturday night.
Authorities on Monday said Ronald Green, 66, was watching TV when he was startled by the sound of his front door flying open.
Ramon R. Matlock entered the home, and Green ran to a bedroom to retrieve a revolver, authorities said.
Matlock swung at Green, and Green fired a shot into Matlock's chest and another into his lower back, authorities said.
Authorities said Matlock ran out the door, but only got as far as the front yard. The Omaha Fire Department pronounced Matlock dead at the scene.

So he takes a swing at the elderly homeowner who he didn't even know?
Violent intruder shot, tries to stagger away but collapses & dies instead.
Wash, rinse, repeat for society’s greater benefit.
The family’s defending of this piece of excrement is beyond the pale. What, exactly, do they want done to this homeowner for protecting himself and his home?
He had a reason all right, he wanted to steal someones stuff. Good shooting, good riddance. And if I was the homeowner, I’d tell the scumbags family to come and clear that sh!t off my yard.
And, tell them to stay off my property. Call the police and report them as trespassers. I guess that isn’t nice of me.
if this would happen about 5 million times the country would be in much better shape.
Ramon be gone!
He won’t do that again. This is a lot cheaper than courts and prisons.
Don’t break into homes. That is the lesson.
I’d think if he did walk in by mistake once he saw what was in the house he’d know that it was the wrong one and leave, or at least ask for assistance in a civilized manner. Fisticuffs aren’t a civilized manner.
In a way the Trayvon sympathy has led to this. And it will keep on getting sillier till someone stops it.
Yes. Perpetuated and kept alive by the msm. If the reporters ignore these pos of laugh, roll their eyes and say good riddance it would be helpful.
I wonder if he was watching Matlock on TV when Matlock came busting through his door.
Does he usually kick in his aunt's door when he visits her?
Or was he a little high on bath salts or whatever else to go all feral like that? Being shiite stupid can be fatal.
Good shootin! Obvious he was having some second thoughts on his way out of the house, having been shot twice. The perp learned his lesson, at least for a brief period of time before he expired.
There needs to be a lot more of “no charges” when these things happen.
It’s sad that the young man couldn’t have been saved and changed and turned into someone more useful to society but since he CHOSE to behave in the way he did I cannot help but say he got exactly what he was asking for.
I love good news stories.
“Matlock’s family says the incident is a misunderstanding and that the 19-year-old wouldn’t have broken into someone else’s house without a reason.”
Do they mean robbery and/or bodily harm aren’t reasons?
Yeah, and if you ignore lesson #1, maybe lesson #2 would be not to take a swing at a homeowner pointing a revolver at your chest.
