Man killed by his vehicle after firing on carjacker

LUMBERTON, NC – A deadly carjacking incident has led to murder charges for a North Carolina man. The event, which transpired in March, was caught on camera in a bustling parking lot of a Burger King in Lumberton, North Carolina.

The video, recently shared online, reveals 38-year-old Jonathan Adam Lecompte attempting to stop 28-year-old Ricky Driggers from stealing a truck. Despite Lecompte’s warnings, Driggers proceeds to enter the vehicle, leading to Lecompte firing four shots as the truck is driven away.

The footage later shows the truck speeding back towards Lecompte and another individual. Despite cries from onlookers to move, Lecompte is hit by his own vehicle, flung into the air, and dragged a distance of about 20 yards over a grassy area.

Driggers, identified as the one behind the wheel, then escapes across the field to another parking lot. However, after crashing the truck on Highway 41, he was apprehended by the police. Lecompte was rushed to a hospital, where he eventually succumbed to his injuries.

Driggers is presently in custody without bail, facing charges including first-degree murder, larceny of a motor vehicle, attempted robbery, and fleeing arrest. He also had pending charges for driving without a license, reckless driving, DWI, and several traffic violations at the time of his arrest.
