Shouldn't even make it to court. The dead guy entered someones property, hiding from the cops. Probably drunk and loud. If it were me I'd think someone was invading my home, would I shoot first or light him up with my flashlight? I don't know. Clearly the homeowner thought his life and his family's was in immanent danger. Years ago when we hid we always used shrubs, wood piles etc. We never would of thought of entering someones home at 2am! we knew that's a good way to get shot! We were 16 / 17 drinking age was 18.
