I didn't say it was legal for Hezekiah ( that's our shopkeeper's name) to shoot Billy in the back. I didn't say it was morally right, either. I never even had Hezekiah shoot him in the back at all. That all came from you.

You know what, though? If Billy had tried to rob Ace the meth dealer down on the corner, no matter what part of his anatomy Ace shot him in and no matter what legal penalties Ace might face for the shooting, I would still say little Billy died because he wanted to rob somebody. Billy wanting to be a big, bad, desperado led to his death. Whether the fellow who shot him is in compliance with the law is a separate issue. Hezekiah and/or Ace being wrong doesn't make Billy innocent or right.
