PHILADELPHIA, PA – A carjacker in Philadelphia pushed his luck after successfully carjacking a vehicle Monday night.  Police in Philadelphia say the carjacker is now in the hospital in critical condition.

Around 6 pm, two men stole a victim’s car, wallet, and cellphone near 10th and Spruce.  Later that night, at around 8:40 pm, they decided to strike again at 18th and Callowhill, but this time, their victim was ready to fight back. Police said the man drew a gun and began firing at the suspect, striking one of the carjackers twice in the head.

Police arrived to find the carjacker laying in the first stolen car, described as a man in his twenties.  The second suspect has since been taken into custody.
