One man's castle defense is another man's 'shooting into an occupied vehicle' arrest. Best to know your state law before taking this as a model to follow.

I thought you could only legally shoot at fleeing perps in Texas.

I wonder if any study has been done about tire shooting, as far as caliber, distance, and angle? Granted some things are obvious, like shooting the side instead of the tread.
I have never seen much point, in that if you could shoot the tires, there are probably much better targets.

The criminal was outside the house and fleeing. The homeowner better hope that the county prosecutor is friendly because you can't shoot at someone in Ohio unless you feel that you or someone else is in immediate danger.
A concealed carry permit is not the same as a criminal hunting license.
