    I got this from the Police Report:
    {Victim- was driving his Toyota Corolla out of his parking garage in
    the 15 block of E. Franklin. Victim saw Suspect near a white truck parked on the east side of Franklin Ave E. It appeared to Victim that Suspect was trying to get inside of the vehicle. Victim was driving n/b towards Suspect, when Suspect got in front of Victim’s vehicle. Suspect had what appeared to be a sawed-off type shotgun that was wrapped in a red vinyl bag. Suspect pointed weapon at Victim and Yelled” Get out of the car, keep the car running or I will shoot you” Victim immediately got out of the vehicle and Suspect got inside. Suspect drove away in vehicle going n/b on Franklin Ave E and then E/B on Garfield St. Victim states his wallet with credit cards and identification cards were inside of the vehicle. I was in
    the area at this time, as there was a burglary that occurred at 15
    Fairview Ave. E. The burglary suspect matches the description of this
    car-jacking suspect. See 2011-186803. I conducted area check for suspect and checked the area for any video cameras. I contacted security at 16
    Fairview Avenue E. to determine if there video cameras picked up incident.
    This was negative at this time. I gave Victim a SPD business cards with
