    Self defense in most states includes defense of others and in most states, lethal force can be used against lethal force in self defense. There may be a few exceptions pertaining to issues of duties to retreat or special circumstances, but those will vary between states.

    Couldn't you get out of your vehicle and clear leather, and as he turns to assault the cops take him out?
    Yes, but as you are turning and drawing on the guy, what happens when one of the cops perceives you as an accomplice? Given the positions of the vehicles, your truck and you behind the suspect vehicle relative to the cops, things might not look that good.

    So you get out of your vehicle and open up on the guy and the cops don't shoot you. However, you are in the cops line of fire to shoot at the suspect and you are going up against a rifle. Are you sure you want to make your stand right there?

    So would you still be charged with anything for shooting him in the back?
    There are no laws on the books that stipulate where a person can be shot legally in a self defense shooting. There are no laws on the books that stipulate where a person cannot be shot in a self defense shooting. The notion of shooting a person in the back as being illegal seems to stem from historical Hollywood movie footage where shooting a person in the back is interpretted to mean the person was not a threat. That is pure crap. Just because a person makes a tactical blunder by turning his back on you in a lethal force situation does not mean you no longer have the right to use lethal force. That just means he screwed up in his tactics and failed to neutralize you before turning his back on you.

    Dead is dead. A lethal force encounter either is or isn't justified. If it is, stop the attacker by the means necessary.

    Of course, every element of your actions, the BG's, and the situation will be drawn out and analyzed. That's the deal. Plan on being attacked for the simple fact that one or more of your bullets entered his back. Plan on explaining your justification. Simply, as suggested above, the BG's tactical screw-up doesn't change the fact that you were threatened and had every justification to stop the threat. So long as that's true, you should be fine ... assuming competent legal representation, of course, which if missing could send it all down the flusher.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
