District Attorney: Ex-NFL player shot by homeowner justified

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Officials say the shooting of a former Detroit Lions cornerback at a multimillion-dollar home in Portland, Oregon, was justified.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://goo.gl/wXGEi0) the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office said Wednesday a grand jury found homeowner Robert McCall's use of force was justified.

Oregon law allows a person to use deadly physical force against someone trying to burglarize their home.

Authorities say Stanley Wilson II was found naked and wounded in a water fountain in a backyard June 22. The homeowner had shot him in the abdomen.

Wilson has been arraigned on burglary and trespassing charges and says he's happy to be alive. He posted bail and his next court appearance was set for July 15.
