Stressfire do you have a cite for the ORC regarding the use of deadly force in general and in protection of another?
Sure, sig:

Can't really find ORC at the moment except:
(B)(1) Subject to division (B)(2) of this section, a person is presumed to have acted in self defense or defense of another when using defensive force that is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm to another if the person against whom the defensive force is used is in the process of unlawfully and without privilege to do so entering, or has unlawfully and without privilege to do so entered, the residence or vehicle occupied by the person using the defensive force.
Though, that one seems more geared towards a home invasion scenario.

Ohio Concealed Carry Manual lays it out a bit more clearly, but without citation:
