OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City woman survives a nearly deadly robbery and shooting.
The victim says she was driving this week near N.E. 53rd and Martin Luther King Blvd. when she pulled over because she was lost.
While checking the GPS on her phone, she says two suspects jumped into her car and demanded cash.
Natali Shamma says the armed thieves demanded cash and her grandmother’s watch.
“The guy had the gun and was like, ‘Take off your watch and give us your cell phone.’ I said, ‘You’re not getting my watch. You’ll have to take it off my body,” Shamma said.
When the thieves tried to steal the car, Natali came up with a creative lie.
“He wanted to take my car and I said I was an Uber driver and the car had a tracker on it,” said Natali.
After the alleged suspects got out of her car, one of the alleged thieves fired a large-caliber shotgun into the back of her car.
The bullet ripped through the back seat and passed through an empty toddler’s seat before coming to a stop in the driver’s seat.
“I literally dropped to my knees because this should have been in my back,” she said.
The bullet lodged against her back, but stopped millimeters short of doing any real damage.
“The car seat definitely saved my life,” she said.
With only a few bucks to show for the crime, Shamma believes Marquaillius Hill pulled the trigger and tried to kill her.
"He was willing to take my life over $20," she said. "For him to pull the trigger, it really blows my mind. There are heartless people out there."
While Hill sits behind bars, a second suspect remains on the loose.
Anyone with information on the second suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers.
