Weekend homicide might be self defense - Milwaukee Homicides: A Closer LookSucks that the victim was shot, but at least he is expected to be ok, and came out on the right side of the gunfight.
A man who was shot to death about 3:45 a.m. Saturday in a flat in the 2900 block of S. 7th St. has been identified as Joseph Biando, 40.
Police said Sunday that Biando had first fired a shotgun at a 29-year-old man who was living in the same flat. Police declined to name the younger man. They said he was unarmed when he was hit by a blast from the shotgun, got a handgun and shot Biando more than once. The younger man is hospitalized but is expected to live.
As of Sunday, police were not characterizing the shooting as a criminal homicide. Prosecutors will likely review the case and determine whether to charge anyone or rule the incident a justifiable homicide.

Sounds like a good shoot to me. Glad he was able to recover enough from being shot with a shotgun to get a weapon to defend himself.
