Police Fatally Shoot Carjacker Following Attack

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A violent attempted carjacking leads to a police chase and shooting.

Adam May reports the suspect is dead and an innocent driver is recovering from the attack.

After the driver of the Porsche came out of a Montgomery county Sunoco gas station, a 19-year-old man was inside his car- demanding he hand over the keys.

The Porsche driver said no, and the man stabbed him.

“We wonder if he was under the influence of something. His behavior is abnormal,” said one Takoma Park police officer.

Police say the attempted carjacking suspect took off in a red Ford Focus, and crashed into three other cars.

“This red car went by going really fast like 100 miles an hour, and he lost control and it flipped,” a witness said.

That’s when the man jumped out.  A female officer tried to subdue him with a taser, but it had no affect.

“He attacked her,” a Takoma Park officer said. “She did not even get close to him. He pursued her,  attacked her, got her on the ground, was assaulting her when our second officer arrived.”

The second officer opened fire and killed the suspect.  The carjacking victim is currently in critical condition.

The two officers involved in the shooting are on routine leave.

    Its a shame that a 19 year old kid was killed in this . I feel sorry for the guy who got stabed and the family of the 19 year old boy who was shot. Its a shame things like this happen . Sometimes it is the way the kid was raised but sometimes its not the parents fault at all. I have raised 8 children and i only have 1 daughter who gives me a fit . Its a shame that children dont come with a instuction manual.
