ATLANTA, Georgia — One man held another man attempting to carjack him at gunpoint until police arrive, according to WSB.

The car owner, Hashim Fannin, says the attempted carjacking happened when he pulled into a parking spot at a Family Dollar in Atlanta.

Fannin says the man got into his passenger seat when his doors unlocked after he parked.

Fannin pulled out his gun when the alleged carjacker said “you know what this is.”

“I told him no, there’s no leaving, leaving was before you hopped into my car … at this point there is not leaving,” Fannin said.

Fannin held the man face-down in the parking lot until police arrived, who then arrested the suspect.

According to police, the suspect was arrested for attempted robbery and entering an automobile.
