A Lyft driver required emergency surgery on Tuesday afternoon, after being shot by a passenger she’d picked up only moments earlier, according to a report from WLBT-3 JACKSON.
The Lyft driver has since been identified as Brandy Littrell (age not given). According to the police report, Ms. Littrell picked up a passenger in Bryam. She drove him to Willie Drive, in Jackson. At some point, the man pulled out a gun, held Littrell at gunpoint, and took possession of the vehicle, with her still in it.
He then drove the car to Beasley Road near North State Street, where he took Littrell into the woods and shot her. Littrell survived the shooting. She was taken to UMMC with life threatening injuries. Police arrested Dontarius Magee (no age given) shortly after 9pm on Tuesday. He was charged with carjacking, kidnapping, and aggravated assault.
