Man Tried To Stop His Car From Being Stolen At A Gas Station. He Ended Up Dead.
A 29-year-old man was shot dead while he tried to stop his car from being stolen and police recently said they arrested a suspect.
Last week, police said they arrested David Jarrad Booker, 20, in connection to the case.
Around 12:30 p.m. on July 10, police in Gwinnett County, Georgia, responded to a gas station for a report of a person shot.
When officers arrived, they found Bradley Coleman, 29, lying dead near the air pumps.
Investigators said Coleman went to the gas station to put air in his tires. While he was servicing his car, another vehicle pulled in with three people inside.
One of the people got out and got in Coleman’s car, according to police.
Coleman tried to stop his vehicle from being stolen and got into a fight with the suspect, police said. A second suspect got out of the other car and got involved.
The suspects ended up colliding with another car with Coleman’s vehicle. Then, one of the thieves shot the victim. The two suspects got back into the vehicle and drove away.
Booker has been charged with felony murder and aggravated assault.
