No, it's because NY only allows deadly force in defense of life.

The thief/attempted murderer was walking away from the victim when he was run down. In most states, you have to demonstrate fear for your life (or that of a family member such as wife/kid) when using deadly force.

Legally, he made a very poor choice.
