The Rogues are used to fighting against a Flash with full superpowers. I don't think they realized how powerless Bart was. The Rogues were panicked because you had the Flash taking people down without powers and, if the Flash were to get to the machine, that would mean that the Rogues would be going to jail. The Rogues were trying to stop him, but I think they, honestly, didn't realize how vulnerable the Flash was without his powers.

They shot at him, but they didn't think he'd actually die. Which is kind of stupid, when you think about it, but they're used to the Flash dogging lightning and fire with a smile on his face. I don't think they were prepared for the Flash to be killed so easily...especially after all these years.

And it's not like he hadn't beat on them pretty effectively without his powers earlier in the issue before they panicked. I think nobody was more shocked that they killed Bart than they were, really. I mean, Wally's costume would still have protected him even in that circumstance due to it's infusion with the Speed Force. I just don't think they meant to kill him.
