PORTLAND, Ore. -- Officials say the shooting of a former Detroit Lions cornerback at a multimillion-dollar home in Portland, Oregon, was justified.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office said Wednesday a grand jury found homeowner Robert McCall's use of force was justified.

Oregon law allows a person to use deadly physical force against someone trying to burglarize their home.
