A homeowner in an exclusive gated neighborhood shot and killed a ‘drunk’ guest who refused to leave his son’s New Year’s Eve party.

The Cypress, Texas homeowner … said that the unidentified man refused to leave the party.
…He said he had ‘no other choice but shoot’ the man, according to Kens5.
Police were called to the residence at Dry Creek Airport neighborhood at around 4am on New Year’s Day, where the man was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.

Did the homeowner do the right thing?
