"Police officials do not anticipate filing criminal charges against a 17-year-old girl who shot and killed a man who was strangling her aunt Thursday night. At a news conference Friday, Police Chief Greg Whinham said 37-year-old John F. Sharp was choking his girlfriend, 32-year-old Mellony Pursel, at their home located at 1920 W. 4400 South when the 17-year-old girl picked up a gun and told Sharp to stop what he was doing. When Sharp turned and came toward the girl, she shot him twice in the chest." (12/17/10)
