San Antonio Father Stops Carjackers

A San Antonio, Texas, man driving with his 15-year-old son around midnight on Saturday proved to be a harder target than some carjackers expected. 

According to police reports, when the man stopped his SUV at a red light, a car pulled up alongside. A man jumped out of that car, pulled open the door of the SUV and tried to drag the driver out of the vehicle. When the attempted carjacker pulled a gun and fired two shots, the driver, who was carrying a concealed handgun, pulled his gun and returned fire.

The suspect immediately fled, and was later arrested when seeking treatment for two gunshot wounds to the arm at a nearby hospital.
