It's a good thing that they were able to finish the job.

Wonder why they're not saying whether these were CCW holders or not. The story is very brief.
If it was a CCWer killing someone, you know this would be blown up to mega proportions.

Well, sucks to be shot, no doubt, but it was the defenders who survived, and that's a good thing! Good job!

It took THIS LONG to determine if returning fire after being shot was justifiable?!?
Well.....nevermind. A month is pretty good time for a goverment entity I guess.

I'm willing to kill to keep it. Are you willing to die to take it?
