TULSA, Okla. (AP) – No charges will be filed against a Tulsa convenience store clerk who shot and killed two armed men during an attempted robbery of the store.

Ryan’s Convenience Store clerk Bradley Keeling shot and killed Kevin Dobbs and Brian Powell on Jan. 13 when they entered the store and attempted to rob it.

First Assistant District Attorney John David Luton says in a news release that Keeling was justified in shooting the men under Oklahoma’s ‘Stand Your Ground Law.’ The law allows a person to use deadly force when he or she has a reasonable fear of great bodily harm or death.

Two other people suspected of being a part of the robbery attempt have been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Dobbs and Powell.
