Man shot in back fleeing carjackers in Old City
Quote:Man shot in back fleeing carjackers in Old City

Police say a man in his 20s was shot in the back as he ran from 2 men trying to carjack him in the Old City section of Philadelphia.

It happened at 2:00 a.m. Monday on Walnut Street near 2nd Street.

The victim told police he had left a club and was walking back to his car.

As he put his keys into the door of the gray 2007 Jeep Cherokee he was approached by 2 armed men wearing hoodies. They began pistol-whipping him.

The man was able to pull away and began running down Walnut Street. He was about a half block away when one of the suspects opened fire, hitting the victim in the back.

Police say the suspects then fled on foot, leaving the car behind.

"The keys were in the car," said Philadelphia Police Captain George Fuchs. "They could have easily taken the car, but for some reason they decided to shoot him anyway."

Police say the victim was able to walk several blocks to find someone to call 911.

If two guys are beating you and then try to shoot you after you've left them the car, then one wonders if they weren't really there to take the car...
