    Fedex driver cleared in fatal punch of man who attacked him, yelled racist slurs - CBS News

    Prosecutors say a FedEx driver was justified in punching a Portland, Oregon, man after he yelled racial slurs and tried to hit the driver first. Joseph Magnuson died following the September encounter with driver Timothy Warren, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

    The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office announced Monday that there's no indication Warren intended to kill Magnuson.

    A county medical examiner determined Magnuson was in "extremely poor health" prior to the encounter, and his fall after the punch to the head aggravated pre-existing conditions.
