If you are justified to shoot someone in self defense (as was the case here - he could have shot him in the head and been justified), you can probably legally fire a warning shot. The problem is that you cannot know for sure where that bullet is going to land. You'd clearly be held liable for any damage that bullet might cause. Tactically it just is not a very good idea. From a legal standpoint, I don't think you'd be charged for it as long as the outcome is positive.
