The details may be wrong as I am hearing tis third hand, but my wife called and related a news story of a carjacker in Acworth. It unfortunately ended tragically for the woman in the car . . .


Carjacker approaches woman at gas station. Woman fights, but is forced into car, which speeds away. Car strikes cement truck and woman is killed. :cry: Carjacker exits vehicle and approaches bystander, then raises his weapon. Wrong bystander. Bystander fires three shots, killing carjacker. Bystander unharmed.


We'll see if the facts are correct later, but apparently the police have decided the shooting was justified.

Very sad, my heart goes out to the women's family.

The article says that the citizen might have prevented another crime. Imagine that, an armed citizen helping out, who would have thought it possible.

Another link with more detail about what the citizen, Shawn Roberts, saw and did. http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/ ... cking.html

My condolences to the woman who died (with a pre-school child, no less), but at least somebody acted. Usually, nobody helps in that situation. You are lucky if they even call the police.

Police also were investigating the possibility that the carjacker's gun had been taken in a robbery, rape and carjacking in Acworth last Tuesday, said Cobb robbery squad Lt. Tom Arnold.
If it turns out to be the same person, I wonder where the gun he stole was kept? From the article it sounds like the gun might have been removed from her house.

The husband has more details than the news stories above, which in comparison appear to be nothing more than rampant speculation.

The Story is conained at Kimberly Boyd Legacy Link
