    Once the "commission" of the crime/threat has ceased, most of us can't pursue the BG.

    The car wasnt exactly fleeing at the time I shot at it. He was trying to hit me and I had just side stepped it and he was then driving toward my other driver.

    The only thing the LEO said to us about the whole situation was.....Great Job!!!

    IANAL, but here's my take. There's clearly no problem on just chasing the felons to start with. After that, they were armed, had just come from a hostage situation, and had entered a (presumably) crowded trailer park. I would think that falls under the area of 'immediate threat to innocents' that does generally justify shooting at a fleeing felon.

    Wow! That's amazing! I'm glad to hear everything worked out for the best. And the LEO's saying "good job" is awesome. Great mindset!
