2.) NEVER disarm yourself before help has arrived! Wait until PD is on-scene and then follow their commands. You may be able to re-holster as they are arriving and if that's the scenario then do so. DO NOT relenquish control of your weapon until help has arrived! When PD is on scene make it known that you are the victim and keep your hands where they can be seen. No sudden movements!
3.) Make sure you are the one who calls for help. Tell them who you are, what you look like, and what you are wearing. Make it known that YOU are the victim and have used your weapon in defense of your life. Say nothing more.
4.) The only thing you say to the PD when they arrive on scene is that your are the victim and fired in defense of your life. You feared for your life. NEVER say you thought or anything even close to that. You WERE in fear of your life. Say nothing else and then contact your lawyer.
Everything else in this post sounds like good advice. :hand10:
