Laws for shooting a home intruder in Louisiana

What are they? Do I have to verbally warn them before shooting or can I shoot as long as they are inside?

Well if you shoot them dead, how will anyone know if you verbally warned the guy or not?

If the cop asks what happen, "I was in fear for my life"

I'm not sure, but the rule of thumb that I would use is that if I feel like my life is in danger then I'm shooting. So if someone is inside then I would shoot. How is anyone going to prove that you didn't give a warning anyway?

If they are dressed as a skeleton, you don't even have to wait for them to enter your home.

Castle Doctrine Louisiana’s castle law permits the use of physical force to protect one’s self and property from “forcible crimes” and the use of deadly force in situations where circumstances are sufficient “to excite the fear of a reasonable person that there would be serious danger to his own life or person if he attempted to prevent the felony without the killing.” The statute has a “stand your ground” clause in that it does not require victims to retreat before using force, whether they’re inside their home or any other place they have a right to be.

re: Laws for shooting a home intruder in Louisiana
My understanding is if they are in your house you can shoot them. If they are running away after breaking into your house you cannot. I had a police officer tell me if I ever shot someone at the door to drag them in the house. I agree with an earlier poster I would always say you feared for your life and thought they were armed. Not sure on verbal warnings.

My thoughts exactly but I've read that the law states you are supposed to warn them first. Doesn't make sense to me either. If someone comes into my house, they're leaving with no brains and in a body bag and a wet vac.

If they're in your house u can usually shoot. If not in your house, shoot and drag them inside like some said. Or put an object in his hand so u can say u thought he had a weapon.

I like to hear about burglars getting shot. I think car burglars should be allowed to be shot too.

I thought I remember Condon talking about a guy that shot someone breaking into his car with a bow. I don't think the guy was charged.

Ill say this. If you do shoot someone dead in your house, or where ever, call an attorney

Drag him into your car after you shoot him.
