ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A man has died after police say he attempted to carjack a family in a St. Augustine neighborhood.

Police say around 1:45 Sunday afternoon David Blythe, 40, got into an argument with his girlfriend at the St. Johns County Main Library on U.S. 1 near downtown.

He walked away and went down an alley behind a home on Sanchez Avenue.

Police say Blythe attempted to carjack a family and then jumped into the family's truck.

The man in the truck, William Theis Carcaba, ran inside his father's home at 146 Cunningham Street to get a gun.

Police say Carcaba's father came outside to confront Blythe. That's when Blythe put Carcaba's father in a chokehold.

Blythe died instantly.

Investigators are questioning Carcaba.

Police said the shooting appears to be justified.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has arrived and is investigating the case.
