Attempted Car Jacking Ends On The Correct Note For The Suspect

They use to hang horse thieves, didn't they?

A would-be carjacker died Monday night after allegedly being shot by the car's owner on the city's west side, police said.

A preliminary investigation found the 19-year-old suspect took a man's car at a gas station about 8:30 p.m. near McNichols and Evergreen, Sgt. Eren Stephens said.

The driver, who had a concealed pistol license, then pulled out a gun, Stephens said.

Shots were fired; the suspect was struck at least once and continued driving the victim's car until it hit a tree, she said.

The teen was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name was not released.
