Short version; idiots pop off rounds behind a car wash that butts up against homes. A man who was awake at the late hour sees the idiots out there shooting in random directions and thinks it's his son's drug dealers. Man shoots one of the idiots dead. The man had the charges dismissed because the DA couldn't make the charges stick at trial.
I would recommend not firing until you have no other choice to avoid situations like this. Also don't ever talk to the police without an attorney. Consider signing up for a USCCA membership so you're not stuck with a public defender at 3 AM.
