Lee Lemons still doesn't know the name of the tow truck driver who killed his son, Lance. If he did, he'd want to ask the driver why he used deadly force over something that may have been a misunderstanding. "Why was your initial impression shoot first?" Lee Lemons said in a recent interview at his DeSoto home. "[Why] not show the gun and say, 'Hey, get out of my truck?"

Lance, 27, was shot to death by a United Tows driver while sitting in the cab of the driver's truck on February 5, a little after 3:30 in the morning. Police have not arrested or named the shooter. They say the shooter left his truck idling and then briefly walked away to look for parking violations at the Flats at Five Mile Creek apartment complex in Oak Cliff. It was then that Lemons got inside and took the car in reverse, police say. The shooter wasn't arrested because he have may have been trying to protect his property, police say, a defense commonly referred to as the Castle Doctrine, as we reported this week.More »
