New Jersey Armed Citizen Shoots Thief at Car Wash

A retired New Jersey police officer shot a carjacker at 5 AM in Elizabeth, New Jersey at a 24-hour car wash.

Union County Prosecutor Thomas Isenhower issued a statement that multiple suspects were on a carjacking spree when one of them, 23-year old Krishad Jones, confronted the retired police officer. Jones assaulted the retired cop, who drew his gun and fired it at the car thief.

Jones was transported to a nearby hospital where he has been charged with a single count of second-degree robbery.
