Yes, you can shoot them in the back or side on occasion.

You have a situation where people are being threatened with deadly force. It needn't necessarily be the shooter him/herself who is being threatened in order to justify the use of deadly force.

But there has to be a realistic threat involved.

So if the perps are threatening you, turn their back to you in order to threaten another - take your shot at stopping them.

But if they have turned to leave and appear to no longer constitute a threat to anyone, hold your fire.

Don't ever shoot anyone because you can justify doing so. You only shoot to stop the perp from hurting someone. If it appears they are not going to cause serious harm, hold your fire.
