Police said they won’t charge a New Mexico man who shot someone to protect his daughter. Albuquerque law officers responded to a “shots fired” call and found a 40-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds to his legs. The investigation revealed that the wounded man, an ex-boyfriend of the daughter, was armed and was trying to gain entry to the residence. The man had a history of allegedly making threats against the woman, and police said the father will not be charged. (KRQE.com, Albuquerque, NM, 6/24/16)
