Has anyone on the show turned that quickly in front of Rick
? IIRC, everyone that he's seen turn did so in a matter of hours (or even days), not minutes.
Unless the CDC guy specifically told Rick "everyone who dies comes back and sometimes in seconds", Rick could easily assume he had at least a few more minutes to finish off Shane.
Furthermore, sometimes people don't react to things immediately, especially in a stressful situation.
The CDC guy told Rick in open dialogue that reanimation can occur anywhere between 3 minutes and 8 hours of death. Even if Rick thought he had a few minutes to deal with Shane coming back, it still strains credibility that someone who just killed his best friend to protect himself and his family would suddenly become so careless.
