Murder charges have been dropped in a fatal shooting in Windsor County.

Kyle Bolaski, 24, of Springfield, was charged with second-degree murder, for killing Vincent Tamburello, 32, of Springfield, in August during a fight at a park in Chester. Bolaski claims Tamburello was chasing him with an ax, so he shot him twice.

A grand jury agreed the shooting was self-defense.

Bolaski will face aggravated assault charges for allegedly hitting Tamburello with the gun after the shooting.
