The 66-year old victim told police he gave up his car when approached, but the suspect shot him anyway. The suspect reportedly fled the scene on foot. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he was last reported to be in stable condition.

Shortly afterward, and about three blocks away at 37th & Aspen Streets, another carjacking took place. A white Lexus was reportedly taken. The car and suspect were both found a short time later on the 300 block of East Chelten Avenue. The suspect was taken into custody.
