The New Mexico State Police have agreed to investigate a deadly shooting in Ventana Ranch.

In March 2013, Donnie Pearson shot and killed Iraq war veteran Jonathan Mitchell.

Police say Mitchell was in his own driveway with a gun.

When Pearson drove by, police say Mitchell shot at Pearson.

Pearson returned fire, killing Mitchell.

Pearson was not charged in Mitchell's death.

The District Attorney's office and APD had asked state police to look into Mitchell's death.
