A Good Samaritan was allegedly shot and killed by the very man he tried to help after he saw a car spin out on an icy North Carolina road on Friday afternoon.
Marvin Jacob Lee, 27, has been charged with the murder of Jefferson Heavner. Police said he struck Heavner once and then stood over his body and shot him ‘numerous times’.
Heavner, 26, was among a group of people, including neighbors and a passing truck, who went to help when they saw a car spin out and become stuck on a Catawba County road around 5.20pm.
The group then decided to call police for assistance when Lee became belligerent, according to Sheriff Coy Reid.
‘They thought he was drunk or on dope and said “Let’s just call the law and let them deal with it'”, Reid told The Charlotte Observer.
When Lee heard them calling the police he took out an automatic pistol and began shooting at the group, who tried to run away, authorities said.
