    I think even in NYC he will be vindicated.

    He should in the future hold off on shooting if it even LOOKS like the perp is going to head for the tall grass.

    I'm glad it looks like he will be acquitted but even NY should be ashamed of him being charged.

    Even if exonerated, his defense against the charges will cost him a fortune.

    There have been many cases like this over the years. (Under different mayors). They have a ZERO TOLERANCE for guns PERIOD in NYC.

    If he would have shot thru the door, I believe it would have been a non Issue, but shooting him in the back while fleeing, I think he may have issues and will likely do time.

    Exactly why I no longer am a resident of new york. sad to say he is not the first to face these kinds of charges after a self defense shooting in new york.

    I hope it works out for him but anything in NYC wouldn't surprise me anymore.

    What type of pellet gun gives off a flash? Why is there no mention of a hole were the gun was supposed to be fired?

    I am thinking he best be having an attorney that can use fear for one of the perps turning and shooting him. After all, they did not find the gun that made the flash.

    I was thinking the same thing. This story is lacking a lot of detail. Not enough facts to get a good read on it, although I tend to think that shooting someone in the back outside of the home in NY is not going to end well for the shooter.

    Read the sensationalized story carefully.....he shot a fleeing suspect in the back who never gained entrance to his home. What threat was he protecting his family from at the time he shot?

    There is no state in the nation where this would not be a crime (yes, even in Texas, because nothing tangible of material value was taken.) Not only was the DA likely correct in bringing charges (based solely on the hyped story we have as "facts") but the shooter will likely be found guilty because.....he is.

    It doesn't sound good for the shooter. Probably screwed up.

    My thoughts exactly. Unfortunately shooting someone in the back is a hard defense.

    First off the guy has been arrested for drugs and fleeing a police officer and was able to apply for a job on the NYPD, the really don't care who they put on the force do they. Second until i see the surveillance video i cant make a clear call on this but if the guy was running away and no longer a threat you should not fire on them, but as i said we don't know the whole story so i will bite my tongue for now.
