This is why I enjoy this forum. There is not a single "hot head" reply to this situation. All replies are well thought out and not full of testosterone. The vast majority of us realize the gravity of shooting another person, whether justified or not.
One of the 4 gun rules is knowing your target and whats behind the target. A parking lot is full of unknowns. What would I do? I might wet myself and whimper like a little child. I have never been in this situation. I would hope I could think clearly and do the right thing but we see situations where Police Officers fail to respond appropriately and get hurt or hurt some innocent person. I will train and think through scenarios and try to avoid stupid people in stupid places, not join a gang and not do drugs. No guarantee, but that should help keep me out of most bad situations.
My last duty station in the Marines was as an Advanced Jet Flight Instructor in Beeville, Texas. We had to grade "situational awareness" on every flight. This was a very important grade for the student and consistent bad grades on this would not be good for his future in flight training. I think the same applies to carrying a weapon. You must keep your head on a swivel and stay alert to your surroundings.
