PA: Released Inmate Attempts Carjacking within Minutes, Is Shot

PHILADELPHIA (CBSNewYork/AP) — A corrections officer leaving work for the day shot and critically injured a just-released inmate who authorities say attacked the guard in the parking lot of a prison in Philadelphia Friday night.

Police say 26-year-old Jamal Bennett attempted to carjack the 66-year-old guard just before 11 p.m., right after the guard finished his shift at Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility in the city’s Holmesburg section.

The two men fought next to the officer’s vehicle until the guard pulled his personal weapon and opened fire, striking Bennett in the chest.
