Feds say reservation shooting was in self-defense

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Federal authorities say a man accused in the November shooting death of another man on the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation acted in self-defense.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says the investigation into the killing of 29-year-old Joel Sherman showed that homicide charges are not warranted.

Purdon would not say whether other charges are possible.

Tribal prosecutors had filed reckless endangerment and assault charges against 31-year-old Justin Keplin following the Nov. 27 shooting. The status of those charges is not clear and a Turtle Mountain tribal prosecutor was not immediately available for comment.

Federal investigators say sworn statements from several witnesses who were at the scene show that Sherman first fired several rounds from his pistol and Keplin then returned fire.
