So Baker, 28, pulled out a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun and fatally shot 18-year-old Carlos Musteliel multiple times in the chest. He called 911 and remained on the scene until deputies arrived.
Musteliel's unidentified 16-year-old companion was unharmed. He ran and hid his sweat shirt in a nearby back yard, he told deputies. He returned later and was questioned by deputies.
Florida law formerly gave people the right to protect themselves from deadly force inside their homes, but in 2005 the Legislature extended the law to just about anywhere you "reasonably believe" using a weapon will stop someone from harming you.
The law has been used in at least 93 cases involving 65 deaths, a recent St. Petersburg Times review found.
