AUGUSTA, Maine (WMTW) - The Maine Attorney General’s Office has determined that a deadly shooting in Augusta in May was a case of self-defense.

Augusta and State police were called to Ready Road Service Towing Company on Riverside Drive in Augusta just before 11 a.m. on May 20.

When they arrived, they found the body of 36-year-old Tyler Morin of Lewiston.

Police say he had been shot by 48-year-old Rob Drummond of Augusta.

Investigators have not commented on what prompted Drummond to shoot Morin.

With the ruling that the shooting was self-defense, the Attorney General’s Office says Drummond will not face criminal charges in the case.
