This is one of those stories where the shop owner was in the right but in the wrong at the same time. He had a right to protect his property but he was a felon with a gun and after the shooting lied to the cops about what happened. Cleaning up after a break-in the thugs came back for seconds and they got some lead instead. The problem was where they were standing when he shot and that he had a gun. After repeated break-in he carried a gun and he was justified if he wasn’t a felon and that got him some time.
