Default Ok to shoot if attacker isn't facing you?

I just saw the video of the 71 year old guy who shot two armed robbers in Florida. Most of his shots were made when the attackers were not directly facing him. The robber closest to him turned away and that's when the old man fired his weapon. His life wasn't threatened at the moment he shot, but the armed robbers could have turned and fired at anyone at any moment. Is it legally "ok" to shoot someone in the side or back and claim self defense?
