CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A woman is shot in the chest after confronting the men who had stolen her car hours earlier.
It's something Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say you should never do, and it almost cost one woman her life.
Officers said a woman filed a report with them Wednesday evening after her Dodge Stratus was stolen.
Hours later, according to police, she was driving around west Charlotte around 3 am, when she spotted her car parked at the Walkers Express convenience store off Freedom Drive.
There were four men sitting in the car at the time.
Instead of calling police, she elected to pull over, and confront the men.
The CMPD said that's when one of the suspects abruptly pulled out a gun, and shot her in the chest.
The men then jumped back in the car they had stolen, and took off down Tuckaseegee Road at a high rate of speed.
But that's not the end of the story.
Police say the woman got back in behind the wheel of her relative's car, and chased after the men.
It was only after she lost sight of them a few blocks away that she called police for help.
Medics raced to the scene and transported the victim to Carolinas Medical Center. At this point her condition is unknown, but she was alert and talking to police as she was being placed into the back of the Medic rig.
The suspects managed to escape.
Police say if you've seen the car, or know where the suspect may be, you're asked to call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 704-334-1600.
