You would think he could have stayed in LA. and got shot. No need to drive all the way to Texas.

"According to OPD Chief Martin McLendon, suspect, identified as Leon Jones III, was involved in two attempted robberies before he was found shot to death in a street.
The first was at a convenience store where Jones reportedly attempted to carjack a man and a woman who were able to flee the scene, police said.
Armed with the OPD-owned rifle, Jones later approached a husband and wife crabbing. According the Port Arthur Police Department, the husband pulled a gun out of their SUV and exchanged shots with Jones. “It was a very heroic act that man did,” Port Arthur Police Department spokesman Det. Michael Herbert said.
Jones was pronounced dead at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds to his chest, Herbert said. The unit and the OPD officer’s weapon were recovered, authorities said."


And the armed citizen with superior marksmanship skills for the win!!:cheers:

"The deceased is identified as Leon Jones III, 25, of Opelousas, La.


Leon Jones III

The gunman walked up to the husband with his gun pointed at the victim who by this time had grabbed his firearm and there was an exchange of gunfire at close range, police said.

The assailant was shot several times in the upper body and was able to return fire before falling to the ground deceased. The female sustained “a very superficial wound to her upper arm” and investigators are trying to determine if the wound was from a bullet fragment or flying glass from the gunfire.

Hebert said police do not have a motive for why Jones came to Pleasure Island or what led to the attempted robbery spree.

The investigation is ongoing with Port Arthur Police working with Opelousas Police.

“We will say that the acts of the husband and the wife were heroic,” Hebert said. “There is no telling what this individual would have done or was going to do once he was on a mission to conduct robberies.”

That guy was lucky he could get to his weapon. Does crabbing preclude carrying a weapon on your person?

Somewhere, a civil rights attorney is frantically applying to Ivy League universities in the name of Leon Jones III in order to prove the above and to cash in during the negotiated settlement.

My guess in that Columbia University will be the post mortem choice of the ghost of Leon Jones III.
