If someone is trying to murder someone, then yes, obviously I'll lie and tell the potential murderer that they aren't here. If my friend was the murderer and was hiding from the police then I wouldn't unless there are some circumstances that I was privy to that would convince me otherwise.

Under the circumstances which you almost explained, the answer would be yes.

However, I would strongly request my friend to hand himself over the police immediately after the wannabe avenger had left.

If he refused, and insofar that I would not wish to pervert the course of justice, by willfully harbouring a murder suspect I would inform the police of my friend's whereabouts regardless of the circumstances surrounding the alleged murder.

Depends on how good a friend they are. If I don’t care as much about them, I wont lie.

There are many situations in the gangster world and legal world (yes ironically both extremes) where lying is a necessity to save someone.
