I am in no way condoning how the guy handled the situation, I do however think people are off base on this whole murder concept.
I live in one. And we don't cotton to any walkers-by round these parts, neither.
Depending on the neighborhood, you either have a guard or you have a security code. It's damn difficult to jump the fence. I know that from personal experience. Seriously, it's not unusual to see a strange face here from time to time.
Look ... I don't know what happened, obviously. But, gun play in this particular situation just seems a little over the top.
