TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-The Twin Falls Sheriff’s office has finished the investigation into a deadly shooting in Murtaugh last year. Authorities have determined the death was a result of self-defense. According to the Sheriff’s office deputies responded to a  fight on the night of Arpil 24th,  2012 on 4808 East ant 2900 North. When they arrived they found two men with gunshot wounds as well as one female, who was not injured, and a car fully engulfed in flames.
