I too conceal carry and when taught by an instructor and my husband, who has won many awards for his shooting skill in the military, over seas and as a civilian, I was taught, you aim for center mass. Why you ask? Because when your defending yourself and you shoot someone in the arm or leg, they can still potentially harm you, you shoot to stop them...end of story.
Yes a life was taken, a young one at that. Perhaps if his parents stepped up and taught him right from wrong, told him stealing or lying is wrong, that you are polite and cooperative, etc. their son may still be alive today. If my son was smart or snotty to an adult, he wouldn't do it a 2nd time, I guarantee you that. I was only pointing out that the boy wasn't innocent like his parents want everyone to think he is, he was a punk. Again, no it doesn't give anyone a reason to shoot him, but I am going to wait to see what comes out in the trial.
