Shooting and killing another person is the highest form of crime and leads to serious penalties and prison time. Trying to deal with such a thing without legal help is not a good idea, since you will need a proper defense that only an educated, skilled and experienced attorney can offer you.
Once you get arrested it’s important to seek legal help. Try not to answer any questions before consulting with your lawyer because anything you say can be used against you.
