Teen's Slaying Ruled Self-Defense
A Tuesday night shooting that left a Durham teen dead has been ruled a case of self-defense, police said Friday.
Jamal Tyree Anderson, 16, was found shot in a parking lot near the intersection of Holloway Street and Briggs Avenue at about 11 p.m. Tuesday, police said.
Anderson died of his injuries Thursday night at Duke University Medical Center, police said.
A 21-year-old man told investigators he was working on a vehicle in the 1600 block of Holloway Street late Tuesday when Anderson approached him and attempted to rob him, police said. The man, whose name wasn't released, told police he was pistol-whipped before he pulled out his own gun and fired several shots, striking Anderson in the head.
Investigators interviewed several witnesses who corroborated the 21-year-old's version of events, and they recovered a gun they believe was used by Anderson, police said.
No charges will be filed in the case, police said.
