...and unfortunately yours fits that definition appropriately! Grabbing a 9mm, walking over and shooting another man in the chest is NOT self-defense, it's called MURDER. The use of deadly force is only allowed in the case that your life is in imminent danger. Also, the use of deadly force has to be appropriate to the percieved threat. In other words, you can't shoot someone because they shake their fist at you or verbally threaten you. The victim's criminal record has no bearing on this incident. He is dead from a gunshot. Both of them are likely a couple of puffy chested, hot-headed redecks that had no self control. Mr. Young should prepare himself for a long stint in a very, very controlled environment! That will allow for him to reflect on his behavior and decide if he REALLY did the right thing by taking another mans life.
