Carjacking craziness in N. Philly

This is a little on the vague side right now because most of the detectives are still out on the street, doing interviews and trying to make sense of the whole thing. That said:

A carjacker struck but didn't get too far in North Philadelphia earlier this evening. At about 10 p.m., police said an unidentified assailant carjacked a man near Erie Avenue and Randolph Street. At some point during the carjacking, the victim -- who police said had a license to carry -- opened fire and wounded the suspect.

The carjacker crashed the stolen vehicle in a housing project parking lot at 11th and York streets, police said. The suspect was arrested by cops and taken to Temple University Hospital. His condition wasn't immediately known. The incident, of course, is still being investigated.
