Sheriff's Deputy Craig Chamberlin announced the decision Tuesday in the May 13 shooting of Sean Parsons by Doug Snarski.
Parsons was an ex-boyfriend of Snarski's girlfriend. Hours before the shooting, Parsons had been served with a no-contact order, prohibiting him from contacting the woman.
Once inside the home, Parsons fired several rounds from two weapons at the homeowner.
Snarski dialed 911 after grabbing a handgun from his nightstand and kept the line open. Dispatchers heard the confrontation, including Snarski ordering Parsons to leave several times.
