[1] The laws of some States permit the use of lethal force for other than preventing imminent death or grave bodily injury.

[2] But if you look at those laws, the use of lethal force is still limited.

[3] It may be justified to prevent an imminent forcible felony, arson, robbery, in the case of a forcible break-in of ones home or under a few other narrowly described circumstances. Those crimes are crimes in which there is a strong likelihood that the victim is in significant physical danger.

[4] I'm not aware of any use-of-force law that could be read as authorizing lethal force against indecent exposure.
