shooting a man while lying on the ground 7 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 3  
Here is a hypothetical:

Lets say that there was a guy in a parking lot with a gun ("Guy A" and there was another guy in a parking lot with a gun ("Guy B". GUy B tackels Guy A and Guy A shoots Guy B. Guy B falls to the ground, then Guy A shoots Guy B again. Would the second shot be in self defense or with the first shot be in self defense and the second shot be attempted murder?

That depends.

Was Guy B going for a weapon or pointing the gun at Guy A after he was shot and while he was on the groung?

Could go either way. If both had guns and Guy A shots first, looks like self defense. Whether the second shot was also in self defense depend on the actions of Guy B - like Samantha said, was he going for his gun or a weapon? Was he getting up or making threatening remarks?

There was actually a UFC fight where a fighter was on his back and the guy on top of him got up and teh fighter on his back kicked the guy standing up with his heel and kncoked him out. It was a crazy fight. So, a guy on his back could still be threatening to someone standing.
