Castle doctrine protects you from the city or state from taking you to court as long as you had reason to believe you or someone was going to have serious bodily harm. Castle doctrine does not protect you from civil cases brought on by the "victim" (aka the intruder) or "victims" family.

That's the way it was explained to us in our CCW in Ohio.

Good story though.

As a side note, never fire warning shots. If you plan to shoot, shoot to kill.

Remember this about armchair lawyering on forums: not only is the advice generally worth exactly what you pay for it is, 99% of the time, coming from non-professionals. To further complicate things laws vary vastly from state to state so what works for someone in one state is unlikely to work for someone in another.

In the unfortunate event that I am forced to use a firearm in self defense I will be thankful my attorney can pull up years of internet postings that strongly hold a position that I was shooting only to stop the threat. I was NOT shooting to kill. Further my training, and hopefully any shooting, will be similar in regards to shot placement as many major law enforcement agencies (center of mass). While I am well aware that shooting someone may cause fatal injuries my intent is only to stop the threat.

I would hate to think the problems that could be associated with public internet postings advising that killing your attacker is a good way to prevent civil litigation in the event of a shooting. Then again I am not an attorney so expressing my concern probably holds very little weight.
