Carjackers Target Driver with Concealed-Carry License — Want to Guess How This Heist Concludes?
All the guy wanted to do was return his Redbox movie.
So he headed to a McDonald’s parking lot to drop off the DVD at a kiosk outside the fast-food restaurant…when two men armed with guns approached him and demanded his car keys and cell phone, according to Houston police.
The would-be thieves, however, had no idea their would-be carjacking victim had a concealed handgun license.
And as TheBlaze previously reported, the 29-year-old was carrying. KHOU-TV reports the man was forced out of his vehicle and pushed down.
Now we know about Melvin Auston and Elijah Mims, the alleged robbers the man shot as they tried to get in his car and drive away, reports KBTX-TV.
Auston, 26, died at the scene. Mims, 32, was injured but got away on foot. A third suspect reportedly picked up Mims and drove him 100 miles to a hospital, KBTX says, where he was treated for a gunshot wound and eventually arrested.
Mims has been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. He and Auston boast extensive criminal histories, including violent offenses, KBTX reports.
A grand jury, KBTX says, will decide if the shooter will face charges.
