This man intervened to save two women and a child from a brutal beating
at risk of his own life and the life of his fiancee (who was in the car
with him at the time).
I went to my car and
stood at the driver's side door. Need turned back to me and started
coming at me with his arms waving and shouting "just shoot me." I
ordered him to stay back, but he kept coming. Then, when he was about
four or five feet from me, he put his hand into his pants pocket, and
that is when I fired my first shot into his left thigh. It didn't stop
him from coming at me. He grabbed my shirt, ripped off the top button
and grabbed my right arm. That's when I shot him the second time
point-blank into his thigh. I was told later that the bullets had
severed his femoral artery and he had bled to death at York Hospital. I
was truly sorry he died, but knew I had made the right decisions.
If he was in a state where he had a duty to retreat, he could well have been convicted.
