Woman Shoots Suspect

On Saturday, November 19, two women were waiting in a parked automobile near Coleman Street and San Miguel Avenue to go to a party.

While waiting, an automobile arrived. The two women informed police that three guys jumped out of their car, pointed firearms at them, and shouted to get out.

One man took the wheel, pulled the woman out, and drove. The woman told the police that the car starts when you hit a button, but the male was having difficulties starting it.

The woman seized his revolver while he tried to start the automobile. Suddenly, a man hit her from behind. She fired at him.

While on the ground, another man shot her, according to the complaint. As the other guy kept shooting, she shoved him off and raced south. She hid in a neighbor’s yard and heard someone say his friend was shot. She hid till the police arrived.

The shot man died at the scene. Police reported the shooting was in self-defense.

Police spoke to someone who knew the shot man. He was with two buddies, including Morrison. Detectives suspected Morrison of the attempted carjacking based on his mobile phone’s GPS information.
