"James Stevens said he knew something wasn't right when he noticed a 2010 Kia following his vehicle Sunday night for about 20 minutes. Stevens, 81, wasn't going to lead the man to his home, so he pulled over in a field in the 5500 block of Northwest Second Place. When the Kia also stopped, Stevens armed himself with a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver and got out of his truck, according to Marion County Sheriff's Office reports.Stevens told investigators that the driver of the Kia -- later identified as Lonnie Lorenza Hollingsworth Jr., 28 -- got out of the vehicle, approached him and demanded 'everything you got,' reports state. 'I didn't want to shoot him, but I had to. I shot him,' Stevens told deputies as he pulled out the revolver from his pocket." (03/11/13)
