Understand that when you claim self defense, the presumption of innocence is turned on its head. You will necessarily admit that you intentionally shot someone. That would ordinarily be what the prosecutor would have to prove, but you will be admitting it. Your defense against criminal liability for you intentional act of extreme violence against another human will be that it was legally justified.
