Good Samaritan Mowed Down and Killed in Shocking North Carolina Carjacking

by State Brief


Shocking video reached social media over the weekend of a carjacking in which a good Samaritan who tried to intervene was run over and killed. The incident took place last month and the carjacker has already been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

Jonathan Adam Lecompte, 38, of Fayetteville, North Carolina was killed when Ricky Alex Driggers, 28, stole a vehicle and then intentionally ran him over while making his getaway.

The incident began at about 10:30 am on Thursday March 14. According to the police, officers were on their way to a carjacking call when they were told the suspect had been involved in a hit-and-run in the parking lot of Go Gas at 2605 W. 5th Street and was trying to carjack another vehicle on W. 5th Street in front of a McDonald’s.

Video posted to social media shows what took place in that parking lot. A man in a reflective vest approach the side of a tow truck, brandishing what appears to be a gun at another man, presumably Driggers, who is in the process of stealing the truck. There is an exchange of gunfire and the carjacker reverses the truck, before speeding off across the parking lot, hitting Lecompte in the process.

Lecompte was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
