Fortunately for McRon Thompson, two armed teens up to no good proved
to be not very bright. According to police, Thompson was washing his
car when a 15-year-old boy forced him into the back seat at gunpoint
while an 18-year-old man got behind the wheel. They drove to a
vacant lot that, apparently unbeknownst to the carjackers, was just
a few hundred feet from a police station. At that point, Thompson
was able to retrieve his .40-caliber pistol from his pocket and open
fire on his assailants. Police officers, hearing the shots from the
station, quickly responded and caught the teens as they ran. The
suspects were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds and later
faced aggravated robbery charges.
