It's a small difference but the gun wasn't pointed at him. It was pointed at two female co-workers who ran back to the back of the store. The pharmacist brought his gun and fired on one of the would be robbers. He then chased after another one, came back, grabbed a 2nd gun, and killed the robber.
No matter how heinous the robber's actions, viglante justice leaves a lot of grey area that as a society we don't wan't to go down.
Had he shot the robber the first time, then called police, he would have been well within his rights.
I wouldn't have taken any joy in finding him guilty, but I'd find him guilty none the less.
