128. I could see maybe man 3. Maybe
But I also don't know Texas homicide law very well (states define the types of manslaughter differently). IMO a murder charge is out of the question here (though ironically if one had lived, he would be liable for a felony murder charge against the other one).

People who rob houses and stores get killed. It's an occupational hazard. I'm not singing praises of the people who pull the triggers; I'm just stating a fact. And the law in general gives a lot of leeway to people who feel threatened by someone they observed committing a crime, particularly (as in this case) on their own property.
