LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) A 22-year-old Lincoln man shot in self-defense last year by the father of his ex-girlfriend has pleaded no contest to making terroristic threats.

Jeffery Stotler Jr. pleaded no contest Friday in Lancaster County District Court. He faces up to five years in prison when he's sentenced in May.

Authorities say a 50-year-old Bennet man shot Stotler last year with a .22-caliber rifle after Stotler kicked in the man's back door. Police say Stotler had attacked the man's 18-year-old daughter, left, then came back and kicked in the door.

Prosecutors determined Stotler was shot in self-defense.
