In a suit brought to recover damages for the death of plaintiff's husband the evidence indicated that the deceased, and other intruders, entered defendant's place of business after having been ordered to leave. The group "threw bricks and other missiles at Gennaro, destroying whiskey bottles and other property, whereupon Gennaro secured a pistol and shot and killed Wade." It was held that defendant was justified in killing the inebriated trespasser. Wade v. Gennaro, (La. App. 1942) 8 So. (2d) 561.
