Hygens Labidou was operating his roofing truck when two men began
yelling about his driving. According to police, the men, who were
white, got out of their vehicle and yelled racial slurs while
approaching Labidou, who is black. The men pounded on the truck and
tried to yank Labidou out through the door. One of them was armed
with a knife. "[Expletive], get out of the truck!" they screamed.
But Labidou is a concealed-carry permit holder. In fear of his life,
he drew a handgun and shot both men twice. One suspect died and the
other went to jail. Labidou was not injured.
