NORT PORT, Fla. -- A man who shot another man to death early Monday was within reason to use his weapon, police say.

Police say Senra "was the aggressor" in the shooting. Authorities working with the Florida Attorney's Office consider his death a justifiable homicide, they conclude.

The shooting remains under investigation.
