Knife attacker shot, killed by armed citizen

Originally ran here as:
Shooting death referred to jury without charges
Ran on Friday, March 23, 2001, and was buried deep in news briefs

HOUSTON, TEXAS (Houston Chronicle) -- The shooting death of a man outside a southwest Houston apartment will be referred to a Harris County grand jury without charges, officials said Friday.

Carlos Carroll, 25, was killed at 8:40 p.m. Thursday in the 9500 block of Deering.

Witnesses said Carroll was shot in the neck after using a knife to threaten a man during an argument. Note:  Considering the fact that the Houston Chronicle usually runs shooting death stories where the bad guy wins on or near their front pages, and considering the fact that the community at large would benefit from widespread knowledge that a Good Guy Wins, we find it unfortunate that this story was buried in their news and only the barest of facts presented. On the day where this story was reported, the paper's front page devoted time to Oscar awards, air pollution, racist affirmative action, the Green party, the most recent school shooting in California, etc. etc., but buried this story in the back 40. Why doesn't the Chronicle prioritize self-defense shootings while glorifying maniacal rampages?
