Legal experts say Landry will have to prove 'imminent danger' in Marigny home shooting
The shooting of a 14-year-old boy has raised many questions, but legal experts say that in a court of law the case will boil down to whether the homeowner who pulled the trigger felt that his life was in "imminent danger," even though the victim had come past a locked gate and was on private property when he was shot.

I hope this case goes nowhere. if I went outside my house @ 0200 & found someone inside my locked gate & fenced yard how can I assume anything other than he is there to harm me or my family. I also would have to think there may be more than one intruder. I would do the same thing this homeowner did. Deal with the immediate threat to protect my life & the lives of my loved ones.

Prior to shooting someone in the head,,,,,another option could have been locking the doors and dialing 911 for the cops to check out the situation.
