Frisco police Sgt. Gina McFarlin said the woman was getting out of her car about 7:45 p.m. at the Wade Crossing apartments when the 19-year-old approached and demanded her keys. The woman refused, and the teen pulled a small handgun. During an ensuing scuffle, the woman gained control of the gun, shot the carjacker once and dropped the weapon. He then picked it off the ground and fled. Police found the man in a nearby apartment complex and recovered the firearm from some bushes near where the woman was attacked. The teenager was undergoing surgery late Tuesday night at Dallas' Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. The woman was not injured. Police found two shell casings at the scene of the attempted carjacking, which occurred in the 9300 block of Wade Boulevard near Preston Road. It remained unclear whether the suspect may have fired one shot into the air as a warning to the woman. "We don't recommend it," Sgt. McFarlin said of the woman's decision to confront her attacker. "Always the safe thing to do, unless you're in fear of imminent bodily injury, is to comply."
