You and another person get into a heated confrontation. The other person is armed with a gun, a taser and a bullet proof vest unbeknownst to you. It turns physical and he shoots and kills you instantly.He claims he was in fear for his life.Justified?

It depends on what exactly transpired, but sure, it could be justified.

You're right but I was trying to make the situation as even as possible. Both started the confrontation and both decided to turn it physical. I just feel if one persons knows they are at an extreme advantage that should be taken Into account.

Well, ideally the person with clear advantage would use proper escalation of force, but that's not always possible.

Right so if you were a jury in this case and from what you've heard and can see that without the weapons it would have been a fair fight. Physically, fight skill, etc. Should this guy be charged with anything for immediately turning things fatal?

I'm just being hypothetical of course those are things you can't really just judge for yourself.
