I am disgusted by the "sympathy" expressed for the killer. Assault, battery and burglary are not, as others have noted, capital crimes. Therefore, deadly force is never a valid response to any of them. A victim of such crimes should simply call the police and allow the police to perform their duty of protecting the public.

Being a criminal is not itself a waiver to the right to a safe work environment.

Prophet of Loss: The woman was obviously wrong for beating and attempting to rob an old man.

The old man is wrong because assault and robbery are not capital crimes. We could, as a society, make them such but we have chosen to impose lesser penalties. The old man shot a fleeing person (who was no immediate threat to him) in the back twice. That is straight up second degree murder.

Not saying its ok but its hardly 1st degree murder.

Actually, it looks very much like first degree murder. Shooting an unarmed person in the back. Twice.
I shake my head when I've been reading the comments on these articles. So many claim "they may have been going to get guns and come back" as some kind of defense for this guy. REALLY? You'd think that if they had guns, they'd have brought them to the robbery in the first place.

Or if the whole point is to let the victim get revenge and some blood on their hands, at least have officers supervise the on the spot execution?  I'd just be more comfortable, personally, with this if we're heading there.

wademh: Nobody else has pointed out an interesting side note. He claims these were the same who robbed him before and who knew he had a gun safe. So the fact that he owned a gun was apparently not a deterrent to thieves. Oh you might say but these were stupid thieves and most would agree they are, but then most thieves are pretty stupid. Anyway, one strike against guns having deterrent value.

maybe more people can relate to being the victim of crime in their own home than being in Chicago?
maybe more people have debated the "castle doctrine" than have witnessed a drive by?

maybe the two things aren't related in any but the most tenuous of ways and the analogy is bad?

He thought about it and deliberately decided to take it upon himself to execute her. Not kill in self defense, not kill out of fear...
