New Orleans carjacker shot during robbery

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An armed man who tried to carjack someone in New Orleans was fatally shot as he stood outside the car.

Police said the identities of the victim or the person who shot him were not available early Thursday.

According to police spokeswoman Hilal Williams, the man approached a motorist, pulled out a gun and demanded the car.

Williams says the driver refused, pulling his own gun out and firing through the door. She says the would-be attacker was struck multiple times. The man died at the scene.
