'law allows' fatal shot, according to ''official''.(?)

The district attorney has announced that no charges will be filed against the honeowner, Donna Jackson, who is the daughter of a local police chief. Interesting that the news report headlines reads

"Law allows fatal shot, Lincoln County official says -NO CHARGES IN LINCOLN COUNTY DEATH"

Law allows? In others words the implication is that it is necessary for government to pass a ''law'' in order to give permission, and 'allow' a woman to shoot an intruder., and that the so-called "official'' is the arbiter of the decision.
