Black homeowner arrested, accused of fatally shooting intruder

Let’s look at Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-11-611(c), which states:

“Any person using force intended or likely to cause death or serious bodily injury within a residence, business, dwelling or vehicle is presumed to have held a reasonable belief of imminent death or serious bodily injury to self, family, a member of the household or a person visiting as an invited guest, when that force is used against another person, who unlawfully and forcibly enters or has unlawfully and forcibly entered the residence, business, dwelling or vehicle, and the person using defensive force knew or had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry occurred.”

Sure sounds like the drunk guy unlawfully and forcibly entered and therefore it applies
