MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A maintenance worker who fatally shot two teens as police say he was being beaten with a baseball bat in Milwaukee will not be charged.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1fuXLNL ) the district attorney's office reviewed the police investigation, interviewed witnesses and viewed cellphone video before concluding that Jeremy Rossetto shot in self defense.

Police said 17-year-old Anmarie Miller and 19-year-old James Bell Jr., both of Milwaukee, were killed in an apartment building stairwell March 12.

Prosecutors are still reviewing the case against a 20-year-old who is accused of punching Rossetto.

Police said the three younger people got into an argument with the 39-year-old Rossetto. Police say one of the three was holding him while another beat him with a souvenir baseball bat before Rossetto drew a gun and fired
