The Oklahoma City pharmacist charged with first-degree murder for shooting a teenage would-be robber six times is out on bail.
He can go to work at the pharmacy where the shooting occurred, but must wear an electronic monitoring device, authorities said.
Jerome Ersland, 57, was charged after he shot the 16-year-old boy in the head, chased another robber outside, and then returned to shoot the unconscious and unarmed teenager five more times in the abdomen, authorities said.
The coroner ruled that the teen was still alive when Ersland shot him repeatedly, and that he died from the shots to the abdomen not the shot to the head.
Needless to say, the incident has stirred debate about the right to self-defense.
