"Robbery" Exceptions to New York State Law re "Use of Deadly Force" and "Duty to Retreat" Reviewed in Self Defense Shooting of Two Attackers

New York State law requires a person to retreat if possible before using deadly force for self-defense with exceptions for when in your own home and (possibly) during a robbery.  The latter will be tested in Buffalo for the shooting of Robert Moore, 19, and Bernard Byrd III, 21, both under arrest for robbery in the 1st degree, who were both shot wounded on the night of December 29th, 2013.
