Criminal charges will not be filed in connection with a July 2022 shooting at a Beverly Hills home that killed two men and injured a third.

Prosecutors with the State Attorney’s Office determined 21-year-old Matthew Durel II was justified when he fatally shot 27-year-old Nikolas Stone Garay the night of July 3 after Garay shot and killed Durel II’s 41-year-old father, Matthew Durel Sr., during an argument over rent.
