Billy John Brown was just trying to get away from the man attempting
to steal his brand-new Ford Explorer, until the man threatened to
kill him. The attempted carjacking took place at 1:30 a.m. in the
parking lot of the Golden Gallon convenience store. A man approached
Brown as he left the store, asking for a light for his cigarette.
The suspect then jumped into Brown's SUV and demanded he start the
vehicle. Brown later told authorities the man made the demand three
times, and he refused. As Brown tried to exit the vehicle, the
would-be carjacker said, "I will kill you." Brown responded by
pulling a .44-cal. Taurus revolver. When the suspect raised his hand
as if he had a gun, Brown opened fire, hitting the man several
times. The carjacker, identified as Jerry Williams, Jr., of
Nashville, died at the scene. An accomplice, who had fled during the
shooting, was later arrested and charged with attempted carjacking.
