    man shot by LEO after short crime spree on unarmed victims

    Sad story that has bad and good points. If only the victims were carrying.

    It was this past Tuesday evening. A woman was airing up a tire at a convenience store when a man approached and asked if she needed a tire gauge. She replied no and the guy pulls a pistol and tells her to get in the truck or he'll kill her.
    She runs away to the store and they call 911. He drives off. He goes to another convenience store a couple of miles away and goes in and talks to some people. He meets them outside and grabs a 12 year old girl's arm and has his gun out again. She pushes away from him and her grandmother grabs her and her other grandchildren and turns to the store entrance. This guy shoots the grandmother in the back. She died on the way to the hospital. She had just picked up the grandchildren from the airport who came to visit from California and Florida.
    The guy leaves and a short distance away sees two 11 year old girls walking on this quiet country road. He gets out telling them to get in his truck, one runs, but one freezes and he grabs her forcing her into the pickup. We get another 911 call from the girl that ran away giving same description of man and truck. Deputies find the truck and the girl inside sees them so she jumps out of the moving truck. one Deputy is in front of the truck and he stops. He orders the guy to shut off the truck and get his hands up. The guy instead his the gas, fires a shot so the deputy shoots him through the window killing him.
    Its now said that he had surgery recently and was on pain meds, details unknown on both.

    If only the first woman or the grandmother had possessed the means to effectively end this sooner. Prayers for all involved.

    Ugh. I've been reading about this. At least the deputy got him before he drove off and could hurt anyone else. What an awesome grandmother, and what a terrible sacrifice.

    He may have been, but that does not account for his stupidity.

    We all know of people on the list that need to be shot. He was one of them.

    That's a pity about the grandmother, though her actions heroic. Good work by the deputy as well.

    As I read this thread it is located just above "Not my job". Everyone is saying how tragic, too bad granny wasn't armed etc.

    How many of the "me and mine" crowd here, had you been there, after watching granny shot in the back protecting the kiddos would stand there twiddling their thumbs and whistling Dixie 'cause you KNOW this isn't the end of it?????????

    Twiddling thumbs and whistling Dixie isn't what anyone is recommending. The spree began to end when an eleven-year-old girl called the cops as a good witness. That's my gut reaction, and I like it.

    The POS seems to like to surround himself with small, weak, innocent victims. Shooting into his space risks hitting one of the innocent victims. The ending was optimal.

    Your location implies some personal experience at least in training for combat. You can probably perform beyond the limitations of most forum members like me. My training doesn't compare to military and police. Mostly, police and SD have the best training and resources necessary to take control.

    The dirtbag is now a dead offender instead of another repeat offender...the only good news.

    He picked the weakest victims he could find, those are exactly the ones who should be armed, and exactly for this reason.
