A violent criminal with a history of carjackings made a
fatal mistake when he forced Coral Springs, Florida, resident Paul
Brite into the trunk of his own car--the same place Brite stored his
two handguns. After a brief drive with his accomplice following in
another car, the carjacker pulled over to see if Brite was
attempting to summon help on a cellular phone. When the trunk was
opened, Brite scrambled out--revolver in one hand, semi-auto in the
other--and ordered the assailant to the ground. Instead, the man
moved as if reaching for a weapon, drawing fatal gunfire from Brite.
When the robber's accomplice tried to run him down, Brite fired at
him as well. The accomplice was later apprehended by police.
