Man Acquitted In Shooting Death
A New Durham, N.H., man was cleared of murder charges Tuesday in the death of a Farmington teenager who went to his home to collect a $50 debt.
George Curran, 22, argued that he shot Michael Allman, 19, last January in self-defense. New Durham Police Chief Shawn Bernier said he was stunned at the verdict.
The incident started when Allman went to Curran's house to collect $50 another man owed him for a television set. Allman and Curran argued, and Curran fired one shot, hitting Allman in the chest.
