It seems contradictory to me that you can be required by law to report a shooting, which may or may not be later determined to have been done in self defense.

If it is done in self defense, and then later proved not to...then was it really done in self defense? He said, she said? or a dead man can't testify? If HANDS DOWN its a self defense shooting then I wouldn't worry about the 5th. If it was later proven that it wasn't self defense, then something went awry.

So to answer your 1st question:

If a person shoots and kills a bad guy in self defense, does the law require the shooter to turn himself in to the police? Or even report the incident?
Yes and yes.
