IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – The man who claimed “Make My Day” law during the fatal shooting of an Idaho Springs man was indicted Thursday on second degree murder charges, CBS4 has learned.

The mountain town of Idaho Springs has been divided after the death of a well-known resident. Eric Spencer was shot and killed in April.

Neighbors told CBS4 after the shooting that they heard an argument.

“I heard some shouting but only from one person. I could hear him yelling but couldn’t hear what he was saying,” said neighbor Angela Thompson.

The suspect’s name will be released later on Thursday, according to the district attorney.
