“In this circumstance, everything lined up to make this a justified shooting,” he was quoted saying.

Police say the suspect, 17-year-old Jakeem McMillan, has been hospitalized in grave condition.

McMillan allegedly entered the store and tried on some rings. He ran out of the store with $800 of merchandise and got into a Jeep, police say.

As the Jeep drove away, Dacey shot at the vehicle, authorities say. The vehicle then struck a truck.
