Pretty sure there is a loop hole in law in LA that states if theft is on private property and is at night then lethal force is warranted.
If the perp were found with an otherwise untraceable lethal weapon with their prints on it after the shooting you would also be good.
Option 2 move to tx. Shoot fricker in yard. Call cops to clean up mess. Just know with civil law your life will still get turned upside down especially if perps skin hue is more than 1 shafe darker than yours.
