ABC reports on the trial

A Houston man on trial for fatally shooting his neighbor says he was acting in self defense and his home video can prove it.
Rodriguez, a former firefighter, was recording his argument with neighbors, when he shot and killed Kelly Danaher, an elementary school teacher, and wounded two other people in May 2010. The 22-minute homemade video is the key to the trial, but what’s on the video might be in the eye of the beholder.
What's your opinion? Does his claim of having acted in self-defense sound reasonable?
Haven't we seen a few of these lately, where the gun owner aggressively presses the situation and then ends up supposedly acting in self-defense?
I don't think his defense will prevail.  How about you?
