"It is reported that the suspects lost control of the vehicle they had just hijacked after a bystander allegedly fired shots at them.

"Further reports indicate that the suspects fled the scene in a getaway vehicle. A search for the suspects is well underway."

One of the thieves is seen crawling out the stolen car leaving a bloody trail before getting into the getaway vehicle car with the rest of the gang.
