AUTHORITIES SAY BENNIE Hall, Jr. went outside to warm up his car
before work, then returned inside to finish getting ready. He left
the door open to keep his car in view, but briefly entered a back
room to holster the .45 pistol he is licensed to carry. At that
point he heard his car pulling away. "I looked, and the car was
gone," Hall said. He spotted the car turning around at the street's
dead end, and when it came past his house, he attempted to stop it
by waving his arms in the air. Instead of giving himself up, the
carjacker veered directly at Hall in an apparent attempt to leave no
witnesses to the crime. Hall shot into the car, killing the driver.
"Mr. Hall has a right to protect himself with deadly force if his
life is in danger ... Based on the totality of the evidence and
circumstances, he was doing just that," said County Prosecuting
Attorney Joe Deters.
