I read the "old thread" warning, but wanted to add another dimension that wasn't mentioned.

I would also agree that his use of deadly force seemed excessive, although it was technically legal. The attacker was just some big, slow, dumb galoot who was just yelling and shoving people around. Maybe he was a mental patient off his meds or something.

No point in debating the details, like not being so obvious about getting his plate number (he could have stayed inside and done that).

But anyway, another angle: while in general we talk of "shooting to wound" as a bad idea, I'm wondering if this might have been a viable case for doing so. The shooter could have easily put a bullet in the knee or foot of the attacker and stopped him, without killing him.
