SAN ANTONIO, TX – A would-be carjacker is in critical condition at a local hospital after being shot multiple times by the man whose Honda Accord he was trying to steal. The intended victim was filling up at a gas station on Tuesday.
The incident, which occurred around 10 a.m. Tuesday at a QuikTrip on San Antonio’s northwest side according to KENS-TV, began when the carjacker pulled up in a grey truck next to the man filling up his car, jumped out and attempted to drive off with his car.
“The car owner got in the passenger side and fought with the man as the suspect put the car in reverse and hit the gas, driving over a sidewalk,” KSAT-TV reported.
“That’s when the car owner pulled out a gun and shot the suspect multiple times, police said.”
Police did not release the names of either man but said that the carjacker was listed as being in critical condition.
We have a lot of sympathy for this driver! First he was victimized by the gas prices at the pump where he was filling up, THEN this criminal lunatic tries to victimize him again!
It’s also worth pointing out that this driver wasn’t in a ‘bad neighborhood’ at midnight on a weekend in July. This was the middle of the morning, broad daylight, at a busy gas station.
There is no time or day or place that you’re safe from running into a criminal madman. This story is a good example of why we encourage gun owners to Carry Every Day.
