    Shelby County men who shot and killed robbers won't be prosecuted
    Changed:7:43 AM on Monday, July 21, 2003
    The Shelby County prosecutor's office has decided not to
    prosecute two residents who shot and killed robbers.
    District Attorney General Bill Gibbons said yesterday his office
    won't prosecute Jason Filippelli.
    The 22-year-old Filippelli was using an A-T-M Friday night when
    two men jumped him. Authorities say 21-year-old Ricky
    Ricardo Wilborn and 24-year-old Ali Ford took the money Filippelli had
    withdrawn and demanded more, forcing the victim to drive them to his
    Investigators say Wilborn went inside with Filippelli, who
    was able to draw a pistol and shoot him dead.
    Police say Ford then confronted Wilborn and was also shot.

    Ford faces robbery and kidnapping charges. Gibbons'
    office said last week a 71-year-old homeowner was justified in fatally
    shooting an intruder.
    Gibbons cautioned that his office reviews each case on its
    merits and the use of deadly force solely to protect property may not
    shield people from prosecution.
