THat's what I was thinking. I don't know about the warning shots. The Winters guy really didn't need to be involved. At the point he came in, who was in danger? The BG were fleeing the scene, and didn't cause harm to anyone but themselves. Keep the victims in the house, and call the police.
When he became involved, HE was in danger, and endangering others.
Can't say it was smart, but it happened to work in this case.
