A recent carjacking in Lubbock, Texas, resulted in a robber facing several charges after threatening a couple. A man and woman were pulling into their driveway when the criminal approached and pointed a handgun at them. As he ordered the male driver to get out of the vehicle and to hand over cash, the woman in the passenger seat retrieved her firearm and handed it off to her companion. The armed citizen then fired several rounds at the robber, striking him in the leg. Officers found the criminal and booked him. (LubbockOnline.com, Lubbock, TX, 9/24/16)
