C.J.I.2d 7.18. Deadly Aggressor – Withdrawal
A person who started an assault on someone else [with deadly force / with a dangerous or deadly weapon] cannot claim that [he/she] acted in self-defense unless [he/she] genuinely stopped [fighting / (his/her) assault] and clearly let the other person know that [he/she] wanted to make peace. Then, if the other person kept on fighting or started fighting again later, the defendant had the same right to defend [himself/herself] as anyone else and could use force to save [himself/herself] from immediate physical harm.
