A man and woman who were shopping at the Wal-Mart on Two Notch Road say a would-be carjacker was not only unsuccessful on Saturday - he is now suffering from a gunshot wound.

Harold Jeffcoat, 29, is the suspect. The victims say the man who tried to rob them came towards them as they were getting into their car and said, "Man, you know what time it is? Give me the keys!" Then they say Jeffcoat pushed his pistol into the man's stomach.

That's when the woman acted. She opened the passenger door and got her pistol from the glove box. She says she fired about five shots at the suspect, who ran away.

Officials say they found Jeffcoat at the Providence NE emergency room. He was there for a gunshot wound to the buttocks. :D

Jeffcoat is currently at the detention center on a $200,000 bond in this case, and is expected to face additional charges.

Police say Jeffcoat was already wanted in connection with half-a-dozen robberies when they arrested him in connection with the Wal-Mart case.

Meanwhile, authorities say the woman who shot the carjacker will not be charged.

I am shocked!!!!!!

I can't beleive that woman had the gaul to pull a gun out and shoot the perp when I am sure the Wally World cammera's caught it all on tape or the parking lot security didn't get there to make a phone call to 911 and get the police involved. What is this world coming to?

Too bad she aimed about 2 1/2 feet too low.
Aimed? One shot out of five: I would not call that aiming!

Very true...unless he one evasive SOB.
With that probably being her first time in a direct confrontation and the way her adrenaline was pumping, I'm almost amazed that she hit him even once.

I'll give this much to her...at least she didn't freeze.

I'm surprised they are not going to send this to a Grand Jury.

She shot at someone when the threat was over.

Normally, they frown on that sort of thing and if it were a guy doing the shooting I believe they may have decided differently.

I am glad that they didn't though.

If he had a firearm as well, then it is really not over until he is out of sight. Otherwise at any point he could have turned around and started firing.
