The victim of a carjacking in Philadelphia narrowly escaped with his life when a suspect opened fire upon him at point-blank range last week, according to reports.
The harrowing incident unfolded at around 2:30 p.m. last Thursday afternoon in the City of Brotherly Love.
The owner of an SUV left the vehicle running while he dipped into a store on a busy street, FOX 29 reports.
When he returned, he encountered a masked man who had opened the driver’s door.
Surveillance footage was shared on social media by reporter Steve Keeley.

The suspect can be seen drawing a pistol and firing at the vehicle owner from just feet away.
“Carjacker shoots at SUV owner. He left the vehicle running & window down,” Keeley explained. “Locked door didn’t deter & neither did Broad & Susquehanna heavily traveled spot at 2:33 pm Thursday.”
“Owner ducked & didn’t get shot as bullets toward Broad St outside the Broad Deli.”
Police described the suspect as a “black male in his teens” wearing winter gear and carrying a silver semi-automatic handgun.
The vehicle was later recovered but the suspect was still on the loose as of Wednesday morning.
