Vegas Woman Shoots and Kills Carjacker with His Own Gun
Jaylin Morrison; surviving carjacking suspect charged with kidnapping
A North Las Vegas woman shot and killed a carjacker with his own gun.
According to arrest report documents obtained by Fox 5 Vegas last week, the woman told detectives she was on her way to a friends house for a ‘Friendsgiving’ party on November 19.
The woman, who picked up her friend on the way, showed up to the Friendsgiving party a little early so she decided to park the car near the home and wait.
A vehicle with two male suspects inside approached the women waiting in the parked car and parked directly in front of them to block them from being able to flee.
Two black males exited the vehicle and with guns drawn and demanded the women get out of their car.
According to Fox 5 Vegas, one of the males opened the driver’s side door and pulled the woman out of the car.
The male suspect couldn’t figure out how to start the car so he put his gun in his lap as he struggled to put the car in drive.
The second male suspect opened the passenger side and got in the car.
The woman was able to grab the male suspect’s gun from his lap as he struggled with the car (the car requires a button to be pressed in order to put the car in drive and he couldn’t figure it out).
The woman ran away with the suspect’s gun but he chased her and tackled her.
The female victim discharged the weapon and killed her attacker.
The other suspect, Jaylin Morrison, survived and was arrested two weeks later.
“Morrison is facing charges of 2nd-degree kidnapping, conspiracy to commit robbery, attempted robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with the use of a deadly weapon, and attempted grand larceny of a vehicle.” Fox 5 Vegas reported.
Fox 5 Vegas reported:
On November 19th, a woman told detectives she went to pick up her friend on their way to a Friendsgiving. The woman said the pair was too early to the party, so they decided to park near the house on San Miguel Avenue and Coleman Street to wait. Arrest report documents note she said she noticed a vehicle approach them fast.
She said the suspects parked directly in front of her car blocking it. She told detectives two black males got out of the vehicle with guns pointed at the women. The men yelled at the women to get out of the car. Before she could process what was going on, one of the males opened the driver’s side door and grabbed her by the shirt, yanking her out of the car. One of the men got into the driver’s seat and attempted to drive away but was not able to get the vehicle into drive. The woman said the car requires a button to be pressed to drive the car. The man had trouble doing so and placed his gun in his lap while he attempted to steal the car. The woman told her friend to run.
The report said a second suspect got into the passenger seat and told the first suspect, “Just go.” The woman noticed the suspect wasn’t holding the gun anymore. The report states that she grabbed it out of his lap and ran. Seconds later, the man tackled her from behind. The report said she tried to get the man off but he was holding her tight. That’s when she turned and shot him.
She told detectives she was unsure if she shot him once or twice. The report said the second suspect started shooting at her. The woman ran to a house and hid in a side yard. The woman told detectives the gun was jammed, so she fixed it. The report said she heard what she thought was the second suspect cry out that his friend was shot. She told detectives once she heard sirens she came out and approached the police. The woman was put into handcuffs but later told she was not under arrest.
