DALLAS, Jun. 11, 2006
(AP) A Navy chief petty officer home on leave from the Middle East was shot and killed by a carjacker three days before he was to report back for duty.

Kameron Pratt, 34, was parked in the driveway of his parents' home in Dallas on Friday night when two men in a pickup pulled up next to his. One man, wielding a gun, ordered Pratt out of his truck before shooting him and stealing the vehicle, police Sgt. Gil Cerda said Saturday.

Pratt stumbled to the porch. His brother found him semiconscious, dialed 911 and performed CPR, but he died at a hospital. No arrests had been made, authorities said.

Pratt, scheduled to return to duty after minor shoulder surgery, was in the midst of his fourth overseas tour of duty in four years.

He would have completed his active-duty assignment in October, relatives said. Pratt had hoped to get a college degree, teach social studies and coach sports. He is survived by a 9-month-old daughter.
