Carjack attempt leads to shooting; two injured

A man who police believe had already stolen one truck Sunday evening allegedly went back for a second one prompting gunplay between the would-be thief and his victim.

Officials say that the first carjacking occurred at a buffet restaurant on Coors when the man forced his way into a Nissan Titan and forced a family out of the truck at gunpoint.

Shortly later the same evening, the man spotted a second Nissan Titan at a Walgreen store at Coors and Central, but the second victim was armed and the two exchanged gunfire, with each of them being struck.

“The victim decided to take that [situation] into his own hands, but unfortunately the victim was shot,” said APD spokeswoman Trish Hoffman.

Both men were transported to an Albuquerque hospital. Police expect they will both survive.
