Police say the deceased has a long rap sheet. He was currently out on parole for an armed robbery conviction.

How many of the more recent threads on various gun-Forums debating "Condition 1" carry (I fail to see the need to debate that at all, really ) cite instances where the bad-guy(s) went in, with gun(s) blazing?
I'm not trying to paint a picture where the stupid and the lazy are turning into mass-killers of ninja-eating skills.
We learn, and so do criminals.
I'm not sure exactly what you mean by your post, dbw...I'm not saying that we do not have the right to defend ourselves against lethal-force threats. I'm not saying that the shooter did anything wrong (er...did you look at the mass of the text of my post above? or did you just focus on that last sentence?).
I'm merely pointing out a "what if" evolution in the mindset of the criminals.
Next time, there might not be a warning shot after the "Why you hesitatin'?" question/'challenge. I'd say that the SD-shooter, in this case, might well have realized how lucky he was, and just might, next time, shoot without first waiting to be shot.

If it's anything like the place I frequent then the answer is most likely yes. Several years ago there was a car accident where an old lady missed the turn, jumped the curb and smashed the building. After calling 911 and making sure she was OK it was back to business. Comment from one of the barbers "Ah not three months ago she did the same thing but hit the place across the street." The head barber (who owns the whole property) told the responding officer to stop in once they needed him to sign the paperwork but otherwise he had customers to tend to.
Another time the power went out. The head barber went back to the garage and grabbed his generator and dragged an extension cord with a tap (one for each barber) through the front door and things were buzzing not two minutes later.
Now this situation would be kind of tough with the body in the way, but knowing my barber he'd just relocate everybody to the storage room and finish up using folding chairs!
