What'd Miss C say about Americans and their cars?
"PLEASANTON -- A 59-year-old man was shot and wounded Thursday night after he tried to thwart a carjacking attempt at his home, police said.
Around 10:30 p.m., the Paragon Circle resident was getting out of his car when a man armed with a shotgun confronted him and demanded his car keys. Police said the resident then hid behind a cabinet in the garage and began to throw objects at his attacker.
The assailant then fired one round in retaliation, injuring the resident in the forearm before fleeing. The resident was taken to a local hospital where he is in stable condition, police said.
Officers arrived within minutes of the attack, but could not locate the shooter. He is described as a white male about 25 years old, measuring between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10, weighing between 150 and 160 lbs., and wearing a dark jacket and a black or dark gray hat. He was last seen running from Paragon Circle."
