As it should be

Police said Tuesday no charges will be filed against an off-duty firefighter who fatally shot a man believed to be stealing a trailer.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the shooter’s actions “did not rise to the level of criminal conduct” in the death of James David Lambert, 41. Authorities said Lambert accelerated his truck in the direction of the firefighter, who had stepped out of his car to try to detain the man.

What’s sad is that there was ever any question of charges being filed.
