Car jacking from the local media
So the BGs block in the Escalade against a concrete barrier on a four lane road.
Four BGs exit the blocking vehicle and come up two on each side weapons out shouting at you. (No info on exactly what type or how many weapons, just at least one firearm, possibly more). They want your car and your money.
The blocking vehicle is such that you can ram it, but you won't get through unless repeated attempts are made, allowing BGs to shoot at you while you try. Cars to the rear thinking there is a crash pull up and stop, blocking a back out attempt, again unless multiple tries are made with BGs shooting at you. Concrete barriers are on both sides of the road at this point, so no driving off road to get away either. Even if you battered through the concrete barrier there is a 12-15 foot drop straight down. Ramming the other vehicles may set off your airbags, which wouldn't be good for you either.
You are in a mixed use residential neighborhood. (I happen to know where this happened and the surroundings). So to your rear there is a shopping center a townhouse/apartment area and a high school. To your front (your line of fire) a middle school, townhouses and single family homes. The road curves at this point, which I suppose is why the BGs picked that spot to act. School was not in session BTW. This occurred about 7:30 PM.
In the end the driver escaped. Police were summoned and police caught the BGs a few miles away at the local mall trying again. I have no specifics on the escape or the subsequent capture of the BGs.
PS - For those who think they are safe in their neighborhood or wonder why we carry all the time. The townhouses in this community sell for $500K plus, professional sports stars, CEOs and such live in this community. An Escalade is what the local high school kids drive. Very low crime area until now. File this under it can happen to anyone anywhere.
