Bummer the kid died, but hey, he asked for it by robbing somebody! It sounds like the homeowner was standing his ground and defending himself. I see no problem there.
Hopefully this will be a wake-up call to the two surviving delinquents and they can make some changes in their lives before they end up in cold storage like their buddy.
