Fatal Shooting on Georgia

A body is found in the San Jacinto area of Amarillo Thursday night.

Police were called to a home on SW 2nd and Georgia around 6pm.

They say the owner told them he opened the door to a man and the two started arguing.  The owner then said the man tried to come into his home to fight him.  That's when the owner got his gun and shot the man.

Police say the man then walked a few steps, fell on the ground and died from his wounds.

They will not release the identity of the victim until his next of kin is notified and an autopsy is performed.

He was 38 years old.

Right now the homeowner is in police custody and will probably not be arrested.  Police say if his story checks out, he will be justified and the case will be presented to a grand jury as self-defense.
