Sherlock kills a criminal in cold blood

I've just finished an ACD Sherlock Holmes fic in which Holmes shot the injured 'villain', whom Watson was trying to patch up, after asking Watson to leave him alone for a moment to interrogate the man. Watson was appalled see that Holmes could kill a man in cold blood but Holmes justified himself by saying that he posed a threat to Watson (he was a blackmailer with influece over the police and knew he wouldn't stay in jail for long, etc etc.)

I'd like to see a similar scene in the BBC 'verse. Yeah, I know Sherlock shot Magnussen in S3 but specifically I'd like to see Sherlock calmly ask John to leave him alone with their suspect/criminal, knowing that John would be upset by his actions and would try to stop him if he was there. John is shocked and upset that Sherlock would kill in such a way.

+ Bonus points if the man Sherlock kills was injured and John had just gone into doctor mode and tried to save his life, even though he despised him.

tl;dr: during an investigation/chase Sherlock kills a man who poses a threat (of whatever nature) to John in cold blood, after asking an unsuspecting John to leave him alone to "interrogate" the witness.
