I'm not a pacifist but I do think lethal force should be avoided unless absolutely necessary. I'm not really a fan of emotionally driven retribution unless we can be certain that doing so will prevent further harm.

Although to be fair, I don't know the specifics of this situation

At that point, isn't it no longer retribution? If the goal is to prevent harm, wouldn't that make it consequentialist/restorative justice?
