Which brings up the Number One rule of lawful gun use: NEVER SHOOT TO PROTECT PROPERTY!
Whatever your personal feelings, the law says that any human life, even that of a car thief, is more valuable than any piece of property. Unless the thief is an imminent threat to human life, don't shoot him.
You have no duty to pursue and apprehend, and no concomitant qualified immunity. But guess who does! The people on the other end of your 911 call. Leave property crimes to them.
