You can't shoot someone for beating on your door.

You don't shoot through an outside door unless you're being shot at.

The man shot an unarmed woman thru a locked screen door. I'm surprised the jury took as long as they did. If it were me, (Yes, I'd have been armed too, in case things escalated), I wouldn't have opened the entry door. I can yell thru it. A call to 911, the suburb in question has a pretty good response time. Had he done that, he'd be sleeping in his own bed tonight, not at the state's expense.

My son used to deliver pizzas. He delivered a pizza to a remote farmhouse one night that housed several hired hands. It was about 2000. My son knocks on the door and when the door swings open there is a shot gun pointed at his head. Not everyone in the house knew an occupant had ordered a pizza. When my son told me that story I went CRAZY!!! Thank God the ignorant ass didn't pull the trigger.

From the article...

A white suburban Detroit homeowner was found guilty on Thursday...

Gotta amp up the racial issue to sell papers I guess....

Was the woman shot black?

This situation stresses "KNOW YOUR TARGET". Randomly shooting is never a good idea.
