    Kidnappers/Attempted Murders waited in Car [Everett, WA]

    This article is about having no self defense, and being incredibly lucky twice. First she gets into her car that has two armed men hiding in it. Then a witness calls 911 while following. Then the bad-guy misses shooting her in the head! Fortunately, the Police get there in time...

    WOW.

    Good Samaritan helps nab armed carjackers | Local News | KING5.com | News for Seattle, Washington

    EVERETT, Wash. – Police say an armed carjacking that occurred Monday morning at a grocery store may have been a case of mistaken identity.

    Two men face serious charges after police say they carjacked a 19-year-old Everett woman at gunpoint.

    The victim says the men were calling her by someone else's name.

    Police say she was with a couple friends grocery shopping. She walked back to her car and climbed in. Inside, two men hiding in the back seat grabbed her hair, pointed a gun and told her to drive

    What the men didn't realize is that a Good Samaritan at the grocery store saw what happened and was on their tail, and on the phone with police. Driving down 112th Street, the Good Samaritan helped guide police officers.

    Meanwhile in the car, investigators say one of the suspects told the other to shoot the woman in the head. The shot missed and blasted through the windshield.

    Officers surrounded the car near Paine Field and the suspects gave up.

    "I don't know what would have happened if that Good Samaritan hadn't followed that car,” Sergeant Robert Goetz said.

    The two suspects were in court Tuesday. KING 5 News isn’t identifying them until they’re charged.

    The father of one of the men hadn't heard of the arrests until we told him.

    Lanelle Quinn knows both of the suspects and used to date one of them.

    "It's just not in his character to do something so violent,” she said.

    But the other suspect she says is violent.

    "Absolutely, he has struck me before, he has hit me,” she said.

    A search of court records reveals that man has a long criminal history, dating back to when he was just a kid.

    The other also has a record but not as serious.

    The article doesn't get into that. They could have punched out a lock on the other side, jimmied the door, it could be an older saturn or toyota where any worn key and a jiggle will unlock it, who knows.

    You're darned right about being lucky though. Good grief!

    I hope she bought a lottery ticket as soon as it was over. With her luck that day she's sure to win! Hopefully the judge set bail so high even Bill Gates couldn't make it, but unfortunately I'd bet they will be out soon applying their trade again.

    The Good Samaritan should be commended for taking action. Too many people today would just walk away.

    Doesn't surprise me for Everett. I can't recall the number of times I had to call in a "shots fired" report when I lived in Everett.
    This latest incident took place about a mile from where I work.
    I take nothing for granted around here, and some friends call me paranoid, but I prefere to be paranoid and alive than complacent and a statistic.
