TN: Armed Woman Runs off Carjacker
A Frayser woman thwarted a carjacking when police said she pulled her pistol on the suspect.
Police said the woman was gathering belongings in her car when the suspect came up to her. It’s likely that he didn’t know she was packing a pistol.
Neighbor Ricky Hammett said his pistol would definitely come out if confronted by a carjacker.
“If I get the chance, I'm pulling,” he said. “I mean, that's just protecting myself."
The attempted carjacking happened in the middle of the morning along Millington Road in Frayser.
Police said the suspect, with one hand in his pocket simulating a weapon, aggressively ordered the woman to get out of her car. That’s when she pulled a gun out and he ran away.
