This particular crime could not have been committed with a samurai sword. It couldn’t have happened with a piece of rope, a baseball bat, a sharpened stick or a rock — only supersonic lead would do.
In Houston Texas, at 12:30 a.m., 22-year-old Aaron James Francis and two passengers were eating in Aaron’s car at a strip mall. Not knowing it would be his last meal, Aaron pulled out of the shopping center and into the street, where a second car cut him off.
Aaron pulled up next to the car, reported as a white four-door Toyota Camry, or something like, and exchanged heated words with the driver. He was accompanied by a male in the passenger seat, and a female in back.
During the argument, the passenger pulled out a gun and fired an undisclosed number of shots into Aaron through his driver-side door. Mortally wounded, Aaron hit the accelerator and the car shot forward. The car continued until it crashed into the east side brick wall of a church in the nearby shopping center.
Aaron died at the scene, but his two passengers were thankfully uninjured by either the bullets or the impact with the building. Texas police have not stated whether or not they will posthumously file charges against Aaron Francis for bringing concealed ammunition into the church without a license.
