This is a story written when the case was rested - It tells a little more about what the police thought and what witnesses said.  Note the fact the Prosecutor didn't like that the 'story' didn't  match the evidence - and the defense said the shooter was in shock at the time of the interview.  DON'T Talk to police without a couple of sleep cycles... it's what the police do.  If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

In short...

If you're involved in a shooting, announce to the dispatcher that you're a CCW licensee and that you shot someone in self-defense, then don't do or say anything until you can talk to your lawyer? But sign the police complaint anyway?
"The point of [so-called "assault weapon" bans]...is not to ban firearms that are dangerous, it's to ban firearms that gun owners want to own because the people making the laws don't like gun owners. If we want to buy non-semiauto AR-style rifles, they'll ban those too, and for the same reason."

+1  I forgot the 'speak with my attorney part' - kinda might want to remember that part :)

I use Second Call Defense.  They stress the same thing.  You're not going to remember things right after the shooting.  You're mouth is going to feel compelled to explain everything.  Just keep it simple and  stfu.  Cops get time to gather their thoughts; so should we.

It is a shame that we have to consider purchasing such policies.

Wouldn't it be fantastic if stories like this never had to happen in the first place?
