Jack Davis, the teen who fatally shot an unarmed WaveRunner thief in the waters next to his Miami Shores home, won't face criminal charges under Florida's self-defense law.

The lethal shotgun blast, prosecutors said Tuesday, was the tragic culmination of a series of facts that when woven together, instilled a sickening fear in the 14-year-old student.
