Atlanta Police said they will not file charges against the husband who killed the man who shot his wife.

Police said the shootings happened Sunday afternoon in a home on Donnebrook Lane in southeast Atlanta.

Investigators said one of the renters inside the home argued with a woman and threatened to kill her. Police said he shot her in the arm. Her husband then charged at the gunman and was shot as well.

Police said the husband managed to wrestle the gun away, and fired at the gunman; he then burst through a window, and died in the backyard.

Investigators said they will classify the case as a "felon killed by a private citizen."

The names of those involved have not yet been released.
