French jeweller who shot robber in defense should be freed and not charged at all

A French jewelry store manager in Nice was arrested for gunning down an armed robber who ripped off his store:
After reportedly being robbed at gunpoint by two men, the owner of a local jewellery shop is alleged to have shot at the thieves as they fled on a scooter, killing one of them.

According to French daily Le Parisien, two men held the owner of La Turqoise, 23 rue de l’Angleterre, at gunpoint some minutes before he was due to open for the day, and forced him to empty a safe.

After fleeing on foot, the men were pursued on to an adjacent street by the jeweller.

The latter then used a 7.65 automatic pistol to shoot at them as they mounted a scooter, according to local daily Nice Matin.
As far as I know, the jeweller may have been released to house arrest, but that's not good enough. He should be released from custody entirely, and he's won backing by more folks who're fed up with the armed robberies that have been increasing in the neighborhood. A Facebook page has already won a million "likes" in his favor.

The prosecutor and the police would be advised to drop the case against him completely, and work instead to change the law to allow more proper self-defense for people who've been attacked by criminals.
