No! Some go so far as to have a "trigger" rule, which is a positive defense to get off the hook. There have been cases where the prosecution could not overcome "Reasonable Doubt" as to who fired the actual round, so both got a reduced charge.

I wish every State had that law on the books.
It doesn't need to be something like an armed robbery, IMHO.
Lets say a guy is fleeing from a felony. That should become felony fleeing. Then lets say an LEO responding to the felony fleeing even from some distance away is involved in an accident and dies or kills someone. IMHO the guy fleeing from a felony knowingly/intentionally set that chain of events into motion -- a chain of events had a potential of killing someone.

Any good defense attorney can convince the jury, it was the 17th shot that stopped the threat ... and if you had shot only 16, you'ld be dead instead.

Agree with everyone else tho, he didn't stop the threat.

The only danger there would be that the clerk might think you were in on the robbery and take a few shots at you.
