Your parents are going to be soooooo proud of you...........

The Onslow County district attorney says there will be no charges against a homeowner who shot and killed a man during a home invasion.

Deputies say Michael Holliday later died at Camp Lejeune's Naval Hospital.

Authorities say Holliday was one of four people involved in a home invasion Sunday night on Abbits Branch Lane.

District Attorney Ernie Lee met with investigators earlier in the week and said late Thursday afternoon that John Moore would not be charged.

In a statement, Lee said, "After reviewing the facts and circumstances of this case, after meeting with members of law enforcement and after considering the applicable law concerning self-defense and defense of habitation, commonly referred to as the Castle Doctrine, I have determined that the shooting death of Michael Holliday, although tragic for his family, is justified."
