The current suspect (now dead) was out (apparently on bond) while awaiting a hearing on a previous burglary. For the homeowner, once burned, twice cautious. This should be an open and shut case for the DA's office.

That is extraordinarily wrong and stupid advice. You will always get caught and it will not look good if you go to court. Even if you manage to clear yourself of the homicide charge, you'll be done on obstruction of justice.
>>Green, 70, told police that he had armed himself, but the dispatch officer told him to put the gun down and wait for police. Green decided to shoot the suspect through the door instead.
>Clearly a dereliction of a lawful order. He should go to jail for disobedience. lol. /sarc.
Not in NM!
NM Constitution, Art II, Sec 6
NO LAW shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms. (As amended November 2, 1971 and November 2, 1986.)
“Happy endings, however in MN he should have dragged the perp inside.

I agree, he should have waited until the perp got inside the door (barely), then emptied the magazine (or revolver) into the sorry S.O.B.!
Of course, my AK won't have too much trouble going through a door, either.
