    I mean, the car was in the driveway, and the guys never got out of the car.  Why, why, WHY didn't this idiot just lock his doors, call the cops, and if it made him feel better, prop a chair against the door and sit in the living room with his gun until the cops showed up?

    Why even step into the driveway, let alone step into the driveway and fire a shot in the air?

    Now a young man is dead for no other crime than being a young male Hispanic who drove into the wrong driveway looking for a friend.

    I just can't understand what on Earth was going through this guys head.

      It would make him feel more frightened.  Powerless.  Cowardly, even, hiding in his home for fear of the dangerous men outside.

      Stepping out there to defend his property with a gun in his hand, why, I'll bet that made him feel brave and tough and ten feet tall.  Much better tonic for the fear than cowering behind a locked door and waiting to be saved.

      ... in other words, I can make a guess as to what was going through this guy's head and it deeply dismays me.
