From KSL TV in Orem, Utah:
Capt. Ned Jackson of the Orem Police Department said the man who shot the would-be carjacker had a weapon and a concealed weapons permit. He had stopped at the store to purchase food en route to a planned target shooting outing.
The identity of the deceased, who earlier in the day was suspected of assaulting a woman, was not released. Police also did not release the name of the man who came to the assistance of the woman.
The man who came to the aid of the woman was described only as 31 years old. He was parked near the woman in the parking lot and overheard her screams as the would-be carjacker pulled her out of her Mercedes SUV. He ran to her aid.
“According to the citizen’s statement, the suspect starts to walk to the back of the car and lunges at him trying to grab the gun. The citizen shoots one round, shoots the suspect in the chest,” he said. The shooting occurred about 11:20 a.m. . . .
