A Linden, Texas, grocery store employee was killed after doing a good deed.

Police and paramedics were immediately called as passersby tried to resuscitate him. Once medical professionals arrived, they took over with life-saving maneuvers. However, Lawrence was pronounced dead at the helipad site. According to Linden Police Chief David Dulude, the incident seemed accidental, but the investigation is ongoing.

“It is unclear of the means of the discharge at this time,” Dulude said.
The grocery store released a statement on their Facebook page, calling the incident a tragedy. “We lost a fine young man,” the statement partially read. “We ask for prayers for this young man’s family.”

“The Lawrence and Crump’s Food Center families have been touched by the outpouring of sympathy and support since this tragic event occurred,” the Spencers wrote. “Many folks have asked how they can support the Lawrence family during this difficult time.”
According to Texas law, residents are allowed to transport a handgun in their vehicle or a vehicle “under the person’s control.” If the handgun is in “plain view,” the owner must be over 21 or have a License to Carry.
