A firearm MUST be used for only defensive purposes. It is the highest level of force. The situation must justify the use of deadly force. That is, there MUST be an imminent and immediate danger to life. A shooting carries a high degree of risk for all involved parties and for innocent bystanders as well.
The shooting will result in the guard and the company being thoroughly investigated by the local police and the Bureau. If the shooting is not justified or if policies or procedures were not followed, the guard, and the company, may be subject to criminal prosecution, civil action or both.
