Pleading for help.
As you've stated, we need a lot more information before jumping to any conclusions.
It is a great thing this case is going to trial and it proves our laws, in this case, are working rather well.
Homeowners should be allowed to defend themselves, however with firearm ownership comes responsibility and pulling that trigger "just because" is not responsible. Now SYG is different. For example Zimmerman was not on his property when he shot Martin. Nor was Reeves when he pulled the trigger in a Florida movie theatre. Trigger happy folks make news for doing stupid things makes it harder for responsible gun owners.

People who think shooting someone through a closed and locked front door have their priorities confused.
People who spout off about how "they'll kill anyone who dares step foot on their property" not only have their priorities confused, but cause more harm than good when it comes to gun control.
If you want people to back off regarding gun control, perhaps you should stop acting like you have a license to kill anyone, for any reason, regardless of circumstance.
