Carjackers who mess with an innocent Florida woman just got backfired immediately!
On an ordinary day in Clearwater, Florida, Louise Ornduff and her son Kalaeb arrived at a Bank of America parking lot, anticipating a simple transaction. They had planned to meet with two potential buyers for their Nissan Rogue, but events took a sudden turn when the would-be buyers revealed themselves as carjackers.
The two carjackers, Lasupta Singletary, 18, and Jernalen Dreshaw Coleman, 17, lay in wait for their unsuspecting victims. As Kalaeb parked the car, the armed duo demanded the keys to the vehicle. Fearing for his life, Kalaeb handed over the keys without resistance.
As the thieves sped away in the stolen vehicle, Louise Ornduff, armed and determined to protect her property, fired a single shot. The bullet struck Singletary, while his accomplice Coleman continued to flee the scene. Eventually, Coleman arrived at a hospital where he left the mortally wounded Singletary, who was later pronounced dead.
The police launched an investigation into the teenager’s death and soon uncovered their involvement in the carjacking. Surveillance videos and witness testimonies helped piece together the events leading up to the fateful shot. Criminal defense attorney Anthony Rickman, unaffiliated with the case, stated that the evidence would determine if self-defense was a valid defense for Ornduff.
Upon learning that Singletary’s death occurred during the commission of an armed carjacking, the police charged Coleman with second-degree murder and armed robbery.
The murder charge was applied because his accomplice died during the commission of a felony. Clearwater PD Deputy Chief Eric Gandy reflected on the character of the young criminals, stating, “Based on their history…and the fact they were engaged in an armed robbery, [it] leads something to…to their character, I would say.”
The case quickly gained traction on social media, with many Facebook users expressing support for Ornduff’s actions.
One commenter wrote, “She was right in what she did and had to, I would have done the same thing had I been in her shoes, and the police and courts should back her up and not take the defense of these criminals, help the police clean up the streets against crime.”
Another user predicted the inevitable narrative that would arise in defense of the young carjackers, stating:
“Everyone knows that the relatives of those two will say that they were good boys. They will probably say that they needed to steal the car to sell it to afford to live. Just wait until the b.s. starts people. I personally think that they both got what they deserved. Too bad for them.”
As the case continues to develop and the court decides the fate of Jernalen Coleman, the public awaits the final verdict on whether Ornduff’s actions were justified.
