Hmm very good question. I would say no but then again he is firing on you with what i guess would be called a cheap suppressing fire. But then again he fled. This is a very posing question.

As always, I feel if you can avoid shooting someone, you should do just that.

But each situation is different.

If the guy was just running away, just let him go. But, in this case, he essentially is running around and shooting randomly (albeit in a specific direction). If I saw just this action I feel I would have a justification to use deadly force.
