Sorry the kid died, but nobody put a gun to his head and made him take the mushrooms. Ultimately, this issue boils down to one of responsibility. The kid is responsible for his own death. This can sometimes be the ultimate lesson in life if one acts stupidly. If he had been in my house, I would have shot him too. This may sound cold, but I will do whatever it takes to protect me and mine.
Not the home owner's fault if there are extenuating circumstances. the kid created them.

I agree, was tragic and the homeowner will have it with him for the rest of his life. That is punishment enough for anyone. Knowing you shot someone 'innocent'
Stupid is as stupid does, he shouldn't have done and he paid a price for that.
