A carjacking suspect was shot and killed by a man who had a concealed weapon on him in Milwaukee on Monday, officials said.
The Milwaukee Police Department said in a news release the 21-year-old suspect, identified as Carlos Martin, was shot after he attempted to carjack a 24-year-old man around 5:50 a.m. near the Milwaukee MachineTool Corporation.
"This is the worst thing that could possibly happen to someone," MPD Captain Andra Williams told FOX6.
He said the would-be carjacker was also armed, and that as carjacking and vehicle thefts continue to rise the incident should serve as a warning.
"This should be a wake-up call to everyone in the community that this is not a game. This is very serious," Williams told FOX6.
