I have this sentence (written by Ulpianus in Digest 9.2.5) :
Sed et si quemcumque alium ferro se petentem quis occiderit
But if someone (quis) killed anyone else (quemcumque alium) when assaulting with a sword (ferro).
However, I don't understand the word se here. It's not reflective as one person kills another.
Can anyone explain the se?
Gratias vobis ago.
