you have no ideal what your talking about. Duty to retreat hace nothing to do with this case. Duty to retreat have to do with be fore you get harmed or assualted not AFTER
example I see you at the mall, I approach you get in your face sayong im about to harm you. You have to retreat or atleast try. Now if I happen to harm you such as pustol whip you or make you in fear of life before you retreat then it is fair game.
also duty to retreat dont apply to homes and place of business such as work
learn yo stuff before talking
"""Similarly, some courts have found no duty to retreat exists when a victim is assaulted in a place where the victim has a right to be, such as within one's own home. The Model Penal Code suggests statutory language that also recognizes an exception to the usual duty to retreat when the victim of the attack is in his or her own dwelling or place of work. It is common to exempt a person's home or car from the duty to retreat, known as the castle doctrine."""
