5-2-607. Use of deadly physical force in defense of a person.

(a) A person is justified in using deadly physical force upon another person if the person reasonably believes that the other person is:

(1) Committing or about to commit a felony involving force or violence;

(2) Using or about to use unlawful deadly physical force; or

(3) Imminently endangering the person's life or imminently about to victimize the person as described in ยง 9-15-103 from the continuation of a pattern of domestic abuse.

(b) A person may not use deadly physical force in self-defense if the person knows that he or she can avoid the necessity of using deadly physical force with complete safety:

(1) (A) By retreating.
Strictly based on the law in AR, it seems like you would be on thin ice.
A)Back to the committing or about to commit...the act is done...the BG is no longer using force while driving away in a stolen car.
B)How would you explain that you could not safely retreat from a car driving away from you?
C)You still have not cited anything that supports your opinion that warning shots are allowed, particularly when fired in the air.
