Thoughts about this? Do you think the guy should have left it alone after already confronting the man and having already called the police 2 times?
Police: Man kills attempted carjacker in NE Houston | Front page | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
A man who is licensed to carry a concealed firearm shot a suspected auto burglar and carjacker who attacked him at an apartment complex earlier last weekend in northeast Houston, police said.
The case will be referred to a Harris County grand jury to determine whether charges should be filed against the shooter, Houston police said.
Investigators said the shooter, who has not been identified because no charges have been filed against him, shot Darryl Milton Franklin Jr., 37, after he and his wife saw Franklin breaking into cars at the complex in the 1100 block of Langwick about 6:15 a.m. Saturday, police said.
No other injuries were reported.
The man and his wife approached Franklin as he was breaking into their vehicle, pulled him away from the car and then called police.
Franklin left, but tried to burglarize other cars in the complex and then attempted to carjack another resident, who ran into his apartment, police said.
The shooter and his wife saw the attack and again called police. They again approached Franklin, who attacked the man and began fighting with him. The man's wife hit Franklin several times to get him away from her husband.
Police said the husband then pulled out a pistol and fired at least once, hitting Franklin in the chest.
The man and his wife called for medical help and performed first aid on Franklin until paramedics arrived. Franklin was taken to a local hospital, where he died.
