He wasn't being heroic because he had a game in his hand, he was reacting to someone threatening to kill him.
Plenty of times people who comply still get shot or killed. Had they stopped them, they may not of been killed. I used to know a link to a video where these guys robbed a convenience store, got the money from the register then just shot the employee and the 3 people who were shopping that were now lying face down on the floor. Cannot find that video but here are other articles and videos:

there are others, but those are the first few I quickly dug up.
The odds are nowhere near as likely that they kill you anyway, as they kill you as you try to fight. You are more likely by far to live by handing over the goods then acting as needed. Probabilities ring a bell, son????
