From the news report this looks like a bad shoot:
A Florida man arrested for chasing down – and fatally shooting – a suspected burglar in Orlando is claiming self-defense in what legal experts say is likely to become the latest Florida “stand your ground” case… the Sentinel writes a preliminary examination revealing gunshot wounds Sanes sustained to his upper back and the back of his neck suggests he had been shot while attempting to flee from Smith….Armed with the .45-caliber handgun for which he reportedly owns a conceal and carry permit and is wont to keep handy while sitting at home, Smith then jumped the fence into the Fountain at MetroWest apartments – as his girlfriend had watched Sanes do moments before – in pursuit of the suspected burglar.
Once there, Smith reportedly told police he saw Sanes, “looking into windows of apartments as he walked past them,” before he confronted him at gunpoint and grabbed him by the hood of his sweatshirt when the man tried to walk away.
Now the article is citing Trayvon Martin shooting, but there are some big differences. The shooter did NOT attempt to call police, the victim was shot in the back multiple times indicating he was fleeing, and there is no notation of injury to the shooter.
Like the Martin shooting this is NOT a Stand Your Ground case, as the shooter didn’t stand his ground, he gave chase. But as we know from the public lynching of George Zimmerman, none of the facts may be accurate.
