DETROIT – A man attempted to carjack a woman at gunpoint Tuesday morning in Detroit.

He is accused of trying to push the woman out of the car. When he was unable to get her out of the car, he allegedly pulled out a gun.

The woman hit the man with the gun, police said, then got out of the car and threw the keys so the man couldn’t get them. The two fought before the man ran away, police said.
