Could have been self defense. Too little information on this situation to make a judgment just yet. I'll wait until further details.

Self defense? Running away from a situation is better than shooting someone. Unfortunately I do know this shooter and he's a long time drug addict and likes to show off his gun and thinks it's cool and he's not afraid to use it. Hopefully this is a wake up call for him to straighten out!

Do you even know all the different scenarios that could have happened? I remember there was a case a few years ago where a resident (who IIRC had a connection to drugs) wasn't charged for fatally shooting a man who had broken into his home. It might have been in Waianae. I don't remember all the details except that he shot someone and I'm pretty sure he wasn't charged. If you know the shooter fine, that doesn't mean you know exactly what happened. I'm just saying since we don't know all the details to wait until passing judgment. BTW running away isn't always reasonable or even possible. We just don't know exactly what happened.

Shooting someone in your own home who's burglarizing it is protected since the perps had no business going inside in the first place and placed everyone in danger inside, it's called protecting your life and property. This scenario happened in a public place which is in the streets. What happens when a stray bullet hits a sleeping child? Don't make excuses for these guys. He has to face the consequence for his action. You also probably believe that the guy who stopped the car and walked back to kick another guy in the chest which later died is innocent.
