Suspect reportedly steals man’s vehicle with man’s child inside. Suspect finds out hard way that he picked the wrong car to jack.


Lamar Thurman, a 29-year-old man suspected of carjacking a man's vehicle with his child still inside, is in critical condition after the vehicle owner caught up to Thurman and shot him several times.

What are the details?

The unidentified carjacking victim's vehicle was reportedly parked in front of the victim's home early Saturday morning in West Palm Beach, Florida, when Thurman allegedly entered the running vehicle and took off with it, according to WPLG-TV.
The victim's 6-year-old son was inside the vehicle at the time, according to reports, while his father was inside the home saying goodbye to those inside.
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Teri Barbera said that Thurman drove away from the residence with the child inside. When the child's father realized that the car had been taken, he and friends phoned 911.
"The victim and friends immediately chased after the vehicle while calling 911," Barbera said, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Thurman crashed the victim's vehicle a short while after taking it, and the young boy's father and friends — who pursued Thurman in another vehicle after calling 911 — attempted to save the child from the car. Thurman only made it about four miles before crashing the car.
Though he'd crashed, Thurman persisted and made a second attempt to drive away with the child in the car. He didn't get very far, as the child's father pulled out a firearm and shot at Thurman several times "in an attempt to stop him from fleeing further," according to Barbera.
Thurman went about 200 yards more before crashing the car a second time. Police arrived on the scene and took Thurman to the hospital in critical condition.
The child was unhurt.

What else?

"The suspect has no association with the victims," Barbera said.
According to a Facebook update, the incident is "still open and active pending further investigation."
State records reveal that Thurman was arrested in 2016 for carjacking and battery.
No pending charges are available at the time of this writing.
