    Repeat thread, and yes. He did shoot him while he was in retreat though, which here would land you in deep crap. Just the sight of the victim's gun had the perp in retreat.

    So I could, but I wouldn't.

    It is all in how you explain it to the court and how good your attorney is. From what I saw the hijacking victim fought his way out of being trapped in a bad spot. Who knows the bad guy may have been trying to move to cover around the building for a better spot to continue the gun fight. The victim stopped the threat. It did not appear the victim did any kind of an execution shot after the suspect was down. He just covered the downed suspect with his weapon.

    That may have worked back then but modern forensics will get ya today. DO NOT tamper with the body, it adds weight to a possible conviction

    Guess you have not spent a lot of time in many US cities. Looks like one of many areas in Yakima to me..............

    I fear our messed up "Justice" system and corporate for-profit jails almost as much as perp attempting to end my life. Yeah, yeah, I know the carried by .... comment. Sorry, unless it is an immediate threat and the person is not turning to run away, I am good.

    Anytime/if you have to fire on someone always remember that even though you may escape jail time, odds are decent you will lose everything you own via a civil case, attorney's fees, etc. If you can kindly ask the perp if he has any relatives before you shoot, that may be wise.

    Nobody has mentioned the second guy who pops around the corner as the perp is getting shot. I could be wrong, but it sure looks like an accomplice who turned tail once he saw the excrement hit the fan.

    Ref. text:
    And that’s exactly what happened in Venezuela recently when a man locking up his store was accosted by a thief.

    Nonetheless, there are any number of places here in the USA that by appearance could be in Central or South America.
    BTW, there is an excellent torta shop in Everett in the shopping center @ Evergreen & 52nd for those of you who long for good Mexican food.

    Most street criminals are quite adept at the evasion shuffle

    I think it was a good shoot and should be even if it happened in the US. a bad guy should not be able to come up and try to kill me then be able to turn around and say " time out I want a do over and you cant do anything about it as I am moving away from you." If you start a gun fight, you finish the gunfight, win or lose.

    He handled his weapon as though he spent some time in training. Nice shooting under stress.
