    AG: Man Justified in Fatal Shooting

    New Hampshire's attorney general says a 20-year-old man was justified in using deadly force when he fatally shot a man in a dispute and he won't be charged in the death of his brother, who was shot when the gun discharged in a struggle.

    Police responded to the Manchester shootings on Nov. 24, 2013. Killed were 22-year-old Edgar Hoffens and 20-year-old Charles Cable.

    Attorney General Joseph Foster's report Thursday says Cable confronted David Hoffens, Edgar's brother, in a long-running dispute. Cable had a gun, brandished it against David Hoffens' face and grabbed him by the throat.

    David Hoffens also had a gun. There was a struggle; David Hoffens' gun went off, hitting Cable and Edgar Hoffens.

    The report said it wasn't clear who fired the shot that killed Edgar Hoffens.
