Hartford man justified in fatal shooting at home

HARTFORD, Ark. (AP) - The Sebastian County prosecutor says a Hartford man was justified when he shot and killed another man outside his home in October.

Eric Wooten shot and killed 44-year-old Danny Joe Massey Oct. 14 in the yard outside Wooten's home. Wooten told sheriff's deputies that Massey had attacked and threatened to kill him and his children.

The Southwest Times Record reports ( ) that Prosecutor Dan Shue said Wednesday that blood found at the scene was identified as Wooten's and supports his claim that Massey had attacked him.
