So during my CCP class we watched a video that outlined NC's deadly force laws. I remember part of the video stating that you cannot shoot someone who IS IN yourproperty and is not threatening, nor can you shoot someone who is leaving your property and is not threatening. (i.e. if you catch a thief in the act with your TV, you can't just shoot him unless he's attacking you.
) However, it said that you can use deadly force to stop an intruder from ATTEMPTING TO ENTER your property, IF there's reason to believe that they are entering to commit a felony or violent crime. (i.e. prying your back door open at 2 in the morning, NOT your angry ex knocking on the door trying to get your attention around lunch time.)
Looking at packing.org's summary of the laws, I can't see anything that makes that distinction, so I'm curious about it. Does it only apply to your place of residence, or ANY private property? If it applies to ANY private property, would this include someone attempting to break into your car?
