Two carjackers targeted the wrong victim in Shreveport’s Highland neighborhood Saturday evening, and the armed victim came out on top.
According to Cpl. Marcus Hines, public information officer for the Shreveport Police Department, the incident happened Saturday night at a Circle K convenience store just before midnight.
“During that time, two individuals walked up to the vehicle, to the victim's truck, pointed a gun at the victim, ordered him out," said Cpl. Hines. "The victim, unbeknownst to the suspects, was armed. And he managed to fire rounds, striking both suspects, killing one and seriously injuring the other suspect."
When officers arrived, they found two suspects suffering gunshot wounds to the upper body.
Hines said no charges are pending against the armed citizen. “Someone pulls a gun on you and orders you out of a car, you have every right to defend yourself,” he said.
