A 73-year-old farmer who was arrested after allegedly shooting a suspected burglar will not face any charges.
Police were called to Kenneth Faulkner's farm at Ockbrook, near Derby, in August.
A man was found with minor shotgun pellet injuries to his leg. He has been charged with burglary and is due to appear in court next week.
Prosecutors say the decision not to charge Kenneth Faulkner had not been taken lightly.
He had suffered two break-ins in recent months.
