Detroit Man Stops Carjacking, Shooting One Suspect

posted on July 30, 2016

It’s known as the home of the big three automakers, but last Monday it was also the scene of a failed carjacking.

On Detroit’s west side, a 37-year-old man watched as two men in a dark-colored Chevy Impala pulled up next to his car. One of the men was holding a gun. The victim was told to leave his car at gunpoint, a request he carried out. However, the victim was carrying a concealed pistol license—as well as a gun of his own. 

The CPL holder pulled his firearm, shooting at the suspects who returned fire. One suspect was struck in the leg and fled back to the Impala. That 28-year-old prospective felon was found at a nearby hospital shortly after midnight, where he was arrested. The second suspect is still on the loose, and Detroit police are asking the public for any information on his identity.
