Also, still saying the claim of sensory loss therefore could not hear sirens means she cannot simultaneously say he said something to trigger the killing.
Sure they are, but again, read books like Red Platoon or any of the books written by SEALs and many of them write about sensory loss. I think that is unavoidable. What is or at least should be avoidable is the bad decision making.

Have you even held a gun? I can easily imagine how someone pointing a gun at someone else would get a huge adrenaline and/or stress bump from doing so.
