Did he solely use force to defend his property....NO... did he use force to defend himself......yes.
Which also states:
VII. DEFENSE OF PROPERTY
A. A person has NO RIGHT TO USE DEADLY FORCE solely to defend his property. This applies where you
are only defending your property and NOT defending yourself or your family. (example, you CANNOT shoot
someone in the back while they are running across your yard with your TV)
B. A person has NO RIGHT TO THREATEN THE USE OF DEADLY FORCE solely to defend his property.
(This is a recent change in the law). (Example, you CANNOT brandish a firearm to run someone off who is
breaking into your unoccupied car in a parking lot)
