    Good shoot or bad.......

    After shooting the perp in the house shooter pursued the perp running down the street, got in a fight with the perp, then shot the perp multiple times, killing him.

    I think pursuing the perp and then killing him is going to cause the shooter problems especially if the perp was then unarmed. What say you?

    I think the shooter is in real trouble. That is based on what was posted.

    As an armed citizen, you shoot until the threat is mitigated. You do not escalate the situation. It would appear in this case, the shooter ignored both. I think he's in trouble.

    And you don't get to be the aggressor.

    The perp broke contact. End of confrontation. The pursuit and reengagement makes the shooter the aggressor in the new confrontation. The shooter went from reacting to an attack to pursuing and initiating the second act. By doing so, he swapped roles with the perp.

    I'm not so sure it is bad. You can try and recover your property in Texas, not sure how that is in NC. If the guy did have some of their property would it change things in NC?

    I haven't and not going to read this. If contact was never broke, good shoot just as on his property.

    If this was in California, the shooter would already be tried, convicted, and executed.
    If this was in Texas, the shooter would have been given a medal, and a reward (except in Austin).
    Since this was in North Carolina, it could go either way.
    Personally, I would not have pursued him out of my house; nor would I have missed him when he was in my house.

    Personally I would have called the Councellors or social workers at 911 and had them come out and handle the situation about the one that got away!
    let them confront him and see IF he had a gun.

    Of course some liberal prosecutor may say he was an aggressor, but there is nothing wrong with chasing someone who stole your property. If he turns on you, then he is the aggressor and you can defend yourself if you feel your life is in danger.

    Put me on the jury.

    And if it had been in England the Government would have already announced a ban on ALL firearms, shotguns, BB guns, cap guns, nail guns, air guns, catapults and any hose attachment that resembled a gun saying the ban is in our own best interests. And there would be no compensation paid to owners of legally held firearms or shotguns.

    Newspapers would be running stories about the demise of AR and AK type 'assault weapons' - missing the vital point that they were banned in 1989..!!
