Even in the additional articles and the edited version of the original one, they are still leaving out details as mentioned earlier. This kid (or adult) could have been in his 20's and the size of a linebacker. They also leave out the demeanor in which the son approached the car. Was he screaming and yelling? Did he bang on a window? Did he have any objects in his hands?
This guy definitely did not use good judgment simply by the fact that he was able to flee the scene. Regardless of the details, it would have been much better on his part to have fled without pointing his firearm at anyone. That being said, without all the details it is difficult to tell whether he may have legitimately been in fear for his safety.
