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.
