OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City police are searching for three men who allegedly shot someone while trying to carjack them.

It happened Sunday night around 8:00 in the 600 block of S.W. 41st Street.

“It was really scary,” said Aracely Villanueva.

Villanueva, her boyfriend, Juan Roldan, and her mother had just pulled up in front of their house after a shopping trip.

They saw three men walking down the street.

“I saw them and I told him to lock the door because I was like how could they be walking out at night?” said Villanueva.

One of the men came up to the driver’s side door and Roldan locked the door.

“He got to it and locked it and the second time he tried to pull it. I guess he got angry and he pulled out his firearm,” said Villanueva.

The bullet went through the window and grazed Roldan’s nose.

It also launched glass into his eye.

The suspects took off running.

“I called 911 and I couldn’t, I mean I was shivering and he couldn’t, he started not to breathe because his nose was clogged up with blood and I got scared,” said Villanueva.

Oklahoma City police swarmed the area searching for the suspects.

“We did contact our helicopter and also our canine unit to come in and help search, but unfortunately, none of these suspects were located,” said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.

Police also found a stolen car that had been wrecked just down the road.

“It’s our understanding that these same three suspects, described as black males, had stolen a vehicle in southwest Oklahoma City, drove it until they crashed it and then went about a block away, found our victims here,” said Sgt. Wardlow.

“Everything happened so fast and I was like oh my gosh,” said Villanueva.

Villanueva and Roldan hope police find these guys, and quick, before they can hurt anyone else.
