NEW ORLEANS, LA – A carjacking attempt was thwarted early on January 26 when the intended victim, exercising his right to armed self-defense, shot the assailant multiple times. This incident unfolded in New Orleans East, around 2 a.m. in the 7300 block of Chef Menteur Highway.

The New Orleans Police Department reported a 23-year-old man approached the victim’s vehicle, attempted to pull open the door, and demanded the victim get out. In a decisive response to this immediate threat, the victim, an adult male, drew his firearm and shot the carjacker multiple times.

The suspect was subsequently transported to a hospital for treatment. Following his recovery, he faces impending charges of attempted first-degree robbery. The NOPD confirmed that the victim, who effectively defended himself in a critical situation, will not be facing any charges.

This incident is a stark reminder of the critical importance of the right to bear arms for self-defense. Situations like this underscore why many individuals choose to carry concealed – to protect themselves in the face of unforeseen threats. The quick and determined action of the victim in this case not only prevented the carjacking but potentially saved his life.
