A man says he was rear-ended and then carjacked in south St. Louis.
A man tells police he was carjacked early this morning by a driver who rear-ended him in south St. Louis.
The 26-year-old was driving about 3 a.m. on Carondelet Boulevard, nearing Interstate 55 in the Boulevard Heights neighborhood, when he was hit from behind, police say.
The man tells police he got out to check on his vehicle, a 2013 Chevrolet Impala, and the other driver and a passenger from the other vehicle also got out. One of the men asked if he was OK, and then they started punching him, he says. The 26-year-old sprinted away.
He claims the men fired shots at him as he ran and then jumped in his Impala and drove away. The 26-year-old tells police he wasn't injured and declined medical attention. Police are still investigating.
