HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – A man who shot and killed two men while working as a CIA contractor in Pakistan faces misdemeanor charges after a fight over a shopping center parking spot.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Peitzmeier said Raymond Davis has been charged with third degree assault and disorderly conduct.

Deputies responding to a fight in Highlands Ranch took Davis into custody Saturday morning, Peitzmeier said. The victim, who was not identified, refused medical treatment at the scene. Davis was freed after posting bond.

In January, Davis shot two Pakistani men he said tried to rob him. Pakistani authorities released him after a deal was made to pay $2.34 million to the men’s families.
