MIAMI COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) — Authorities in Miami County say they consider a deadly weekend shooting a justified homicide.

The county sheriff says 30-year-old Donny L. Sturgill was shot Saturday night near the town of Denver, Indiana. He was in someone else’s home.

24-Hour News 8’s news partners at The Kokomo Tribune report there were signs of forced entry and a struggle. The homeowners then shot Sturgill.

Sturgill had been arrested twice for violent crimes.
