Police have determined that a deadly Saturday night shooting in DeKalb County was an act of self-defense.

Two men got into an argument at a home on Wingfoot Court, police said Monday. One of them, 40-year-old Linus White, pulled a gun and shot at another man, according to a news release. The other man returned fire, killing White.

Because the shooting was deemed justified, police said the man who shot White will not be charged.
