Security Officer Interrupts Carjacking By; Rick McCann

San Jose Ca. Oct. 30, 2007

A man with a handgun banged repeatedly on a car window before shooting out its tires and firing shots at a security guard in an attempted carjacking near San Jose's Kelley Park early Sunday morning, police said.
It was around 1 a.m. when a woman and two of friends sat parked in an apartment building parking lot on Lucretia Avenue waiting to pick up people inside. After their friends got into the car, Sgt. Nick Muyo said, a man with a handgun approached the driver's window.
Using the gun he pounded on the window and demanded she roll it down. The driver refused. As the gunman walked around the car toward the passenger window, the woman threw the car in the reverse and backed out of the parking lot, Muyo said.
The woman heard several gunshots as she left the apartment building's lot.
After she drove a way the woman got out of the car to check the damage. As she noticed two of her tires had been punctured by bullets, she heard four more gunshots, Muyo said.
Police believe that those were fired by the carjackers.
A security guard at the building heard the first shots fired at the car and went to investigate, Muyo said.
The man noticed two men, one with a gun, near a parking garage at the complex. The men fired repeatedly at the guard, missing him, Muyo said.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call San Jose Police at (408) 277-4166.
