    UT - Police: Man shoots, kills would-be carjacker outside store

    OREM, Utah (AP) — A shopper with a concealed weapons permit shot and killed a man who was trying to carjack a woman Saturday outside a Utah grocery store, officers said.

    The 31-year-old male shooter was in Macey's parking lot in Orem, 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, when he heard a woman's screams as she was being pulled from her SUV by the suspect, investigators said.

    The man told police he went to assist the woman, and the 27-year-old male suspect lunged at him in an attempt to grab his gun.

    The man fired one round at the suspect, hitting him in the chest. The suspect later died at a hospital.

    No other injuries were reported.

    From the link:

    The suspect allegedly assaulted a woman earlier Saturday and drove to the Macey's parking lot in a stolen pickup. Once there, he exited the truck and tried to carjack the woman at about 11:20 a.m., police said.

    Very glad the shooter was skilled and able to use those skills under pressure.

    Good for him! One less person we have to pay for a trial for and support in jail. I feel so sympathy for criminals.

    Wow that is TWO "self defense" cases in that county in 24 hours.
    Trust me, that is CRAZY for the area.


    Pleasant Grove is just a town over from Orem, only Lindon separates them.
