According to the Charleston Post & Courier, a lady was in her house and heard noise outside her home. She saw a man "playin around" by her truck and heard noise in the garage indicating that someone was in the garage. She took her 12g, opened the window and fired at the legs of the guy at her truck. With the noise, she noticed a woman running from her garage and the two of them took off into the night. Police investigated and determined that the man may have been shot and so they looked into hospital treatments and lo and behold, a man showed up with pellets and bruise in his legs. He was arrested along with the with the woman and no charges will be filed as to the woman and her discharge of the shotgun. We have a "castle doctrine" law here in SC and I have no sympathy at all for the slimeballs but I still have a problem with the story. No call to police, no immediate danger of life---not even a confrontation. Personally she could have killed them out on her property and I would have read the story and smiled but something still bothers me. My question is: Just how far does "castle doctrine" take you in the State of SC. I still assume that imminent threat of death is a necessity, not just committing a felony (in this case burglary and theft) or am I wrong?
