    "A reasonable person would have felt that his life was being threatened,” Thurston County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Heather Stone explained."
    “I exercised the threat of deadly force because I was required to,” he said.
    The man emphasized that the events leading up to the shooting occurred in seconds.
    Stone said the man’s statement of firing his handgun only after being struck in the head was corroborated by another witness."



    Of course, there is still a possibility of a Civil trial.
