The target of a carjacker turned the tables early Monday, pulling out a gun and killing his would-be attacker.

The owner of a 1994 Camaro had pulled into the parking lot of the Summerlake Apartments, 3449 NW 44th St. near Oakland Park, about 3:20 a.m., said Jim Leljedal, Broward Sheriff\'s Office spokesman.

The driver was getting out of the car in the gated community when he was approached by a young man who demanded his keys.

When the driver refused, the man began to pistol-whip him, Leljedal said. That\'s when the driver pulled out his own gun and fired at least twice, killing his assailant.

A possible second suspect fled in a white Chevrolet.
