NEW INFO: Farmville Shooting Death Ruled Self Defense

There will be no charges filed in a confrontation that turned deadly in Farmville.

Ellis Hunter died Sunday from injuries he received a week ago on Main Street in Farmville. Police say Hunter was shot twice after a fight with William Payton. Payton was also stabbed.

Based on witnesses and evidence collected, police say Hunter went to Payton's vehicle and started stabbing him through the window. Payton managed to get out of the vehicle and was able to get a pistol and shoot Hunter.

Police say Wednesday they met with District Attorney Clark Everette who decided that the death was a case of self defense.
