I think the homeowner handled the situation in the wrong way. It does look premeditated since he laid a trap and used the firearm in the manner he did.

The teen was definitely in the wrong for what he was doing, but that doesn't justify the homeowners actions.

He should be charged with murder (in the 2nd degree?).

There was another case not too long ago where an intruder was killed by the homeowner and no charges brought against him. We take our guns right seriously up here.

I think this is seen as more premeditated than protection.

Quoting La.Coffee.Drunk:

I think it depends on the state laws on gun owners rights as to protecting their property. (which I don't know enough about) In Oklahoma or Texas it wouldn't be murder.

I feel that if someone is stealing your stuff on your property, u have the right to shoot to kill. You never know if the people are armed or not, if you are willing to commit a crime be prepared to pay with your life or don't commit crimes. I will defend my home and if that means shooting to kill I will. Two kids against one man and in the dark, I would have lit it up with my gun as well.

nope. they set a trap and planned to shoot. he should definatly be charged.

now if they'd closed the garage and heard someone breaking in and shot to defend themselves that would be different. this was premeditated

It was one kid who walked into a trap.
