Man arrested after police say he shot at fleeing game room robber.
You can read the whole article in the Galveston Daily News.
I don't know all the facts but it's not what I understand the law to be.

ALGOA — Authorities arrested a patron at a video slot machine game room on a felony charge after accusing him of shooting at a fleeing robber.
Christopher Albert Arguijo, 34, of Alvin was charged with deadly conduct with a firearm and released from the Galveston County Jail on a $5,000 bond, sheriff’s office spokesman Maj. Ray Tuttoilmondo said Friday.

If a perpertrator is running away he/she is no longer immediate threat
don't shoot call the cops And whatever you do don't chase after him/her
chasing will make it worse :rules:
