Authorities say they will not charge a Bennet, Nebraska man who shot his daughter's boyfriend last week.

The Lancaster County Sheriff's Department says an investigation shows that 50-year-old Michael Kinney shot 21-year-old Jeffrey Stotler in self-defense after Stotler forced his way into Kinney's house around 2 a.m. on March 20th.

Stotler had argued with Kinney's 18-year-old daughter Miranda and knocked the woman down with his car. Investigators say he then tackled her when she ran to the house. Officials say he left the property, but came back and forced his way into the house. That's when Kinney shot the younger man with a .22-caliber rifle in the chest and stomach.

Stotler, who is on probation for falsely imprisoning another woman in 2011, is recovering from his wounds.
