    Man Shoots Knife Wielding Murderer

    http://www.sacbee.com/101/story/619115.html

    The El Dorado County District Attorney's Office has identified the 33-year-old man who the DA said was responsible for Sunday's stabbing rampage which left one man dead and one man wounded as Behnam Pazoki.

    Pazoki, who family members described as mentally ill, was visiting relatives in El Dorado Hills on Sunday when he grabbed a kitchen knife and chased terrified relatives into the street. During the rampage, which occurred on the 1000 block of Venezia Drive, Pazoki stabbed Vahid Seyedin, 47, the owner of the home he was staying at, and killed his uncle Ahmad Pazeky, 58, according the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office.

    Pazoki was ultimately shot by a neighbor, Shahin Kohan, 47, who witnessed the attack and came to the family's aid armed with a handgun, sheriffs said.

    In a press release issued today, the district attorney's office said that after Kohan warned Pazoki to stop, Pazoki turned his attention to him and other neighbors that had gathered around watching the horror unfold.

    "Mr. Kohan's actions directly prevented other people and himself from being seriously injured or killed," the release said.

    El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson called Kohan's actions heroic in the release.

    ""All too often the term hero is applied to situations where it is inappropriate...," Pierson said in the release. "Mr. Kohan was a bystander whose quick action, done at great risk to him, likely saved lives and certainly prevented additional injuries. Mr. Kohan, by any definition, is in fact a hero."

    Sheriff's Deputies briefly detained Kohan on murder charges following the incident, but quickly released him after the facts of the case were reviewed.
    Pretty Pro-CCW words from the DA in the great communist state of Ka. Maybe attitudes everywhere are changing.

    I am not sure about all states, but I know here in CT deadly force is authorized to protect a 3rd party from deadly force or imminent great bodily harm:

    Sec. 53a-19. Use of physical force in defense of person. (a) Except as provided in subsections (b) and (c) of this section, a person is justified in using reasonable physical force upon another person to defend himself or a third person from what he reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of physical force, and he may use such degree of force which he reasonably believes to be necessary for such purpose; except that deadly physical force may not be used unless the actor reasonably believes that such other person is (1) using or about to use deadly physical force, or (2) inflicting or about to inflict great bodily harm.
    So hopefully someone who committed a similar act here in CT would not be charged either. The story does say that the BG turned his attentions on the shooter and the crowd, so it isn't exactly clear who the BG was coming after when he was stopped.

    Good work no matter who the guy was coming after.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Good to go in WA State too.

    I'm glad he was able to prevent further death and injury. How awful to be stabbed to death in the street in front of your neighbors.

    He deserves the praise he's receiving. Good for him.

    And that is how we do that. It really should, from the viewpoint of "the system" and law enforcement, be this simple. A violent felony is witnessed and stopped. End of story, once that basic facts are known. Of course, this guy had a truckload of witnesses, he was a neighbor helping out, etc. If anything, this is a textbook case of how critically important corroborating witnesses can be, how important it is to be seen as the GG, and (by comparison) how tough it could be if the same situation were to unfold where it was a he-said / she-said type of deal.

    Glad it was stopped. Kudos to the honor and bravery of those involved.

    Don't count on it. Any Dept. that would charge you with suspicion of murder even for 24hrs. with the evidence and witnesses they had is in my opinion just looking to hang someone. At least they have a sain D.A. and the man was cleared. To arrest him at all given the circumstances was just plain B/S.
