The shooter is toast. You just can’t shoot a robber running away since it is no longer a threat. The guy will do time.

Article is unclear.

When police arrived, the witness told officers he had a permit to carry a gun and that he had shot the armed robbery suspect during a confrontation outside a nearby restaurant.

If he was chasing the guy, and the perp stopped and confronted him while armed, the shooter will have a very good case for self-defense. Especially if other people saw it.

I suspect a good deal will depend where the bullet went in. If the bullet's in the guy's back, he is indeed probably toast. In MN, anyway. He'd be fine in TX.

Not if he can convince the cops that the perp turned the gun in his direction. He might be okay.

we’ll see. these things are not static.

he could have disengaged then re-engaged hostilities.

I hope the good samaritian had a valid permit and isn’t charged. anyone giving an old lady a beating deserves a fatal bullet.

I agree. That is exactly what I was told when I went through the CC classes. You need to be in fear for your life when you elect to use your carry arm.

I don’t care how or where he shot him. He walks if I’m on the jury.

Why we need “open season doctine”.

Pull a gun to rob someone, and it is now open season on them.

From what I have heard on the local radio They kept him overnight for questioning and released him this morning. They have not filed any charges yet.
