When can I use deadly force in the defense of another person?

Under the current version of Florida Stand Your Ground Law, a person is justified in the use of deadly force in the defense of another person to prevent death or great bodily harm to the other person, or to prevent a forcible felony from being committed to the other person. Now, before one uses deadly force in the defense of another, they must reasonably believe that it is necessary to do so.
