Armed car thief, 23, unable to drive with a stick, drops the vehicle he just robbed, jumps into the getaway car – and then actually carries out an even more pathetic action

An armed carjacker in San Antonio, Texas, was definitely not up to the task early Thursday morning and not only managed one, but two miserable mishaps in a row.

What are the details?

police said KENS-TV Two people were leaving a bar on the St. Mary’s Strip and getting into their vehicle around 2 a.m. when a 23-year-old man showed up and demanded their car keys.

Police told the station that the victims complied with the request and got out of the car.

However, there was a big problem for the suspect. KENS reported that he “had difficulty operating the manual transmission vehicle.”

Tsk tsk tsk. Children these days.

Since the suspect lacked this obviously outdated skill, he abandoned the vehicle and MySanAntonio reported. Officials told KENS that the suspect then got back into the getaway car, where a second suspect was waiting.

Which brings us to the even more pathetic moment.

KENS said the original suspect began shooting at the owner of the shift truck. The unfortunate suspect definitely picked the wrong victim to shoot at.

Police told the station that the victim returned fire, hitting the suspected thief in the head.

MySanAntonio, citing police, said the victim fired shots at the getaway car, piercing the back of a headrest and grazing the head of one of the suspects.

KENS said the two suspects fled the scene and called 911 from a west side home in the 2300 block of Observation Drive. Police told the station that the injured suspect said he was involved in an accident downtown.

According to MySanAntonio it is Mother The injured man called emergency services and was taken to University Hospital in a stable condition.

KENS said investigators put two and two together and the wounded man was charged with aggravated robbery. The broadcaster added that the other suspect is unknown at this time, but the investigation is ongoing.
