Utah police praise man who killed carjacker
Police are hailing a man who shot and killed a would-be carjacker outside a Utah grocery store, saying he did the right thing by coming to the aid of the vehicle’s owner.
The 31-year-old man was in a 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 Saturday, investigators said. Police Capt. Ned Jackson said the man fired his pistol after the suspect lunged at him in an effort to grab the gun.
