This is the shocking moment a Good Samaritan attempted to gun down an alleged carjacker before being mowed down and killed by the man. 

Jonathan Adam Lecompte, 38, died after being struck and thrown into the air by the stolen vehicle after he fired four shots at a carjacker outside a Burger King. 

The incident happened last month in Lumberton, North Carolina, after police say Ricky Alex Driggers, 28, stole a vehicle and then hit Lecompte. 

Authorities charged Driggers with first-degree murder, two counts of attempted common law robbery, larceny of a motor vehicle and felony fleeing to elude.

Footage of the incident, which has been widely shared on social media, shows Lecompte aiming a firearm at Driggers moments before he was mowed down.

Lecompte can be heard warning him: ‘Don’t get in the god damn truck fool’, as he starts letting off shots at Driggers. 

In total, Lecompte fires four times before Driggers reverses up the road away from him.

Others who observed the collision can be seeing running over towards Lecompte who lays lifeless at the side of the road.

Officers with Lumberton Police Department later caught up with Driggers who fled the scene, after he wrecked the vehicle on a highway.

In a statement, they said: ‘Good Samaritans got involved to prevent the carjacking but the suspect was then able to steal the vehicle of one of the good Samaritans.’
