No Charges To Be Filed In Shooting Death Of A High School Wrestler

KSCB News - January 6, 2012 8:03 am

A southwest Kansas prosecutor says no
charges will be filed in last fall’s fatal shooting of a star
wrestler from Garden City High School.
Eighteen-year-old Braxston Medina was killed on September 6th
after going into a house to retrieve personal items he had loaned
to someone. Finney County investigators said at the time that
Medina had entered the home illegally.
A 17-year-old inside the house shot Medina once in the chest.
Finney County Attorney John Wheeler said
Thursday the shooting was a case of legal self-defense under Kansas
law. Authorities said 17-year-old did not know Medina, only that
someone was entering the house illegally.
Medina had just begun his senior year at Garden City High
School.
