MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. – A driver had his Jeep Grand Cherokee stolen but luckily was not hurt when the carjackers shot at him.
Macomb County Sheriff’s deputies were called around 11 p.m. Tuesday (Jan. 25) to the Shell gas station at 37887 26 Mile Road in Lenox Township. Police said a man and a woman had fired shots at someone before stealing his Jeep Grand Cherokee and fleeing on 26 Mile Road. The carjacking victim was not injured, authorities said.
What happened next was captured on Macomb County Sheriff’s dash and body cam. The suspects are a man and woman, and as the dashcam will show in the video player above, it was the woman behind the wheel fleeing police.
It was Chesterfield police who initially spotted that carjacked Jeep flying down I-94 and gave pursuit. When the chase turned onto Hall Road, Macomb County deputies joined the hunt as you can see the woman behind the wheel in the video player above had no intention of stopping.
The female driver started ramming a squad car. Once police stopped the Jeep, both the woman behind the wheel and the man she was with in the passenger seat took off on foot in the snow.
The man ultimately stopped, and police found two guns on him. The female driver had no weapons on her. It turns out that the duo is from Mississippi.

The man whose Jeep was stolen wasn’t hit by the shots fired at him, and none of the deputies were injured, but some squad cars are pretty banged up.
The Macomb County prosecutor has leveled a bucket of charges at both the driver and passenger, including assault with intent to murder. They are being held at the Macomb County jail on a $300,000 bond.
