WATCH: Lumberton Carjacker caught on video running over and killing another man


A video is surfacing on social media that shows an incident that was reported last month in Lumberton, North Carolina, on West Fifth Street.

In the video, a good Samaritan, Jonathan Adam Lecompte, 38, opened fire on 28-year-old Ricky Alex Driggers in an attempt to prevent Driggers from carjacking another vehicle.

Moments later, Driggers mowed Lecompte down.

‘Don’t get in the goddamn truck, fool!’

Lecompte could be heard yelling at Driggers before he started shooting at him. Next, the video shows Driggers backing up in the white truck.

Moments later, Lecompte could be heard yelling to bystanders, “Get out the way, he is going to run into us!”

The truck could be heard speeding forward and striking Lecompte, sending him airborne.

Lecompte was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
