A while back I started a thread here titled http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...-shooting.html My scenario was fictional and meant to be a reminder of the aftermath that a citizen may face after defending himself. With that in mind, below is the link to another forum and discussion about a recent shooting involving one of their active members.
Here's the link, the appropriate thread to read should be at or near the top of their page, you should also see several more links referencing this story on other gun forums as well:

I'll give you the abbreviated version of the story. A young man aged 19, we'll call him "A", took his friend "B" to a bad part of town. They went inside a house where there were two other males, we'll call them "C" and "D". For some reason, "C" hit "A" in the head with the butt of an AK, "A" drew a .40 Glock and shot and killed "C".
The remaining three men (A,B & D) all ran out of the house and into the street. It just so happens that a patrol car was nearby and "D" reported the incident to the police. The shooter "A" was arrested and AFAIK is currently being held in jail for first degree murder. The police report that drugs were involved.
Here is some information about "A":
19 year old male, too young to apply for CC permit, though is quite active on various gun forums. It seems he OC's quite a bit since he can't CC legally. I haven't gone back and searched his posts before this incident, but I think it's reasonable to assume the prosecutor will and could have a field day with his internet transcripts of every post he's ever done and use his comments/philosophy against him.
Bad part of town + guns + drugs = tough days in court for a 19 year old and his future.
FWIW, I'm not trying to just report this incident here as news, I'm using it as a "factual example" as a follow-up to how really bad the aftermath can be for someone. In this case, the young man made some serious mistakes in judgment which makes his aftermath much worse for him. The lesson's here are obvious, but they are too late for this 19 year old.
BTW I don't know anyone involved in this whatsoever, only what I've read.
