Are there any exeptions to this commandment that makes it acceptable to take anothers life?

This link is to the 5th commandment in the Catechism, it's going to summarise most of what you're looking for. In short, self-defence is permitted, and when one is responsible for the safety of others, defence can be a duty. It must be proportionate to the degree of danger and so at times may involve lethal force.
