Default Another shooting in Greenville, MS

As many are aware about 18 months ago my friend in Greenville shot and killed a thief trying to steal his neighbors dogs....

Well a day or two ago my friend was in his office on his PC about 2AM. His son had just put up 4 cameras around the house and the monitor was in his office. Seems that some guy was breaking into his truck. Well he snuck out the back door and at the gate yelled at the guy. The guy, unknown to my friend had a 32 and shot at him. My friend returned fire with his newly acquired .45 auto. The guy was standing sideways, the bullet entered the side of his leg about "jewel" high, exited, into the other leg and out that one, not to be found. As the guy was laying on the ground with his pistol and before my friend had a chance to kick it away, the guy was pleading for his life, saying he has a wife and child. Knowing my friend I'm surprised the ambulance was able to transport him to the hospital alive. Come to find out, that was the LAST break in he will try....He's in a paralyzed state.

That's great to hear. More of these low life scum bags should receive the same.

Glad your friend was not injured and it's nice to know that this a-hole will have the rest of his paralyzed life to rehash his stupid decisions instead of getting off his ass and earning a legitimate paycheck like the rest of us.

I thought you could not shoot someone in your yard. Or even the neighbor's yard. Did the guy attempting to steal the dogs shoot at him 1st ?

Different states, different laws. This episode that Tunaman describes, happened in Mississippi, and I have not read up on Mississippi's laws regarding the subject. I know in Texas, this would have been perfectly legal.

In Florida you can not shoot a guy in your front yard, but there is more to the story, that I think you might have missed on the first read.....

The story that Tunaman tells also states that the bad guy drew a .32 and fired on the home / property owner. The good guy then returned fire with a .45, giving the bad guy a brand new asshole, which will cause me to lose absolutely no sleep tonight !

I would be willing to bet that in Mississippi, it is perfectly legal to return fire, and I suspect in Florida as well !

I "THINK" the answers are here

paragraph (1) (e) is what i think would apply.

http://michie.com/mississippi/lpext....=main-h.htm&cp

when you click on the link, type "retreat" into the search field to get to the text of the statute that applies.



97-3-15. Homicide; justifiable homicide; use of defensive force; duty to retreat.




(1) The killing of a human being by the act, procurement or omission of another shall be justifiable in the following cases:


(a) When committed by public officers, or those acting by their aid and assistance, in obedience to any judgment of a competent court;


(b) When necessarily committed by public officers, or those acting by their command in their aid and assistance, in overcoming actual resistance to the execution of some legal process, or to the discharge of any other legal duty;


(c) When necessarily committed by public officers, or those acting by their command in their aid and assistance, in retaking any felon who has been rescued or has escaped;


(d) When necessarily committed by public officers, or those acting by their command in their aid and assistance, in arresting any felon fleeing from justice;


(e) When committed by any person in resisting any attempt unlawfully to kill such person or to commit any felony upon him, or upon or in any dwelling, in any occupied vehicle, in any place of business, in any place of employment or in the immediate premises thereof in which such person shall be;


(f) When committed in the lawful defense of one's own person or any other human being, where there shall be reasonable ground to apprehend a design to commit a felony or to do some great personal injury, and there shall be imminent danger of such design being accomplished;


(g) When necessarily committed in attempting by lawful ways and means to apprehend any person for any felony committed;


(h) When necessarily committed in lawfully suppressing any riot or in lawfully keeping and preserving the peace.
