This is interesting, I like the fact that news story stated he was praised and not the cynical "officials are investigating whether to charge the blind man with manslaughter"

I don't know the actual definition of "legally blind," but I know that it does not necessarily imply "can't see anything but a black screen in front of you". Chances are he can see shapes and light and dark, and that's probably enough to be able to point a revolver at an attacker who is at arm's length.

Focusing on the crime and the criminal, instead of the victim and tactics used to remain safe. What a concept. Glad to see the citizen is okay. That's the goal, every time.
