"Can I shoot him now?" -The Internet

"Are you in reasonable fear of immediate, otherwise unavoidable, death or grievous bodily harm to yourself or another innocent person?" 

 That's the answer to the question in the title whether he has pepper spray or a gun or bare hands. If there's one of him or five of him. If you're in the middle of the street in a state with a duty to retreat or in your bedroom in a state with a castle doctrine law. If you're in a plane or on a train or on a boat while afloat. Unless you can articulate that answer in the affirmative, you should not shoot him, Sam I Am.
