Shawnee County prosecutor will not file charges in home invasion shooting death in Topeka

December 10, 2010


Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor says he will not file charges in the shooting death of a man during a home invasion.

Topeka police say 49-year-old Edward Bowens was shot to death early Saturday when he broke into a neighbor's apartment.

Taylor said in a news release Wednesday that the apartment's tenant, 46-year-old Norman Hammond, acted in self-defense when he shot Bowens.

Police did not indicate why Bowens broke into Hammond's apartment.
