A couple was approached by 29-year-old Christopher Rigby as they sat in a vehicle in the parking lot of Earl’s True Value around 11 p.m. Rigby, who appeared homeless, asked the couple for a dollar. When they refused, he walked away. Approximately 15 minutes later, Rigby returned and approached the driver’s side window. Rigby then produced a knife and tried to stab the man in the driver’s seat. The driver quickly grabbed a gun from the console and shot Rigby in the chest as the woman in the car dialed 911. Rigby was pronounced dead at a local hospital. (The Free Lance-Star, Stafford, Va., 5/24/12)
