Marine Fights Back in Carjacking

January 15, 2003  | 

A Marine sergeant based in North Carolina who served in Afghanistan last year shot and killed a would-be carjacker.

Sgt. James C. Lowery, 22, returned fire after being shot in the face in the drive-thru lane of a fast-food restaurant in Montgomery, Ala. He was listed in fair condition.

Police said Lowery got out of his Chevrolet Suburban when approached by a gunman in the drive-thru lane of a McDonald's resaurant. The gunman shot Lowery, who was then able to get his .45 caliber pistol from the car and shoot his assailant multiple times. The man, Thaddeus Antone, 19, was dead at the scene.

The fatal shooting is viewed as self-defense and no charges were filed, police spokesman Lt. Huey Thornton said. It will be reviewed by a grand jury following routine procedure.

Lowery, who was on leave at the time of the shooting, serves with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252, based at the Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point, N.C.
