NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two teenage girls were held at gunpoint and their car was stolen early Monday morning in South Nashville.
The sisters, ages 18 and 19, had just gotten home from work at their apartment complex on Paragon Mills Road when the crime happened.
They told News 2 they were driving a blue Toyota Camry into the complex when a dark, four-door sedan followed them home.
After the parked and started getting out of the car, the 19-year-old says she heard one of the men say to the other, “Should I do it?”
And that’s when the man approached and put a gun to her head, allegedly saying, “Give me the keys.”
The two women ran inside to tell their parents what happened as he took off in the Camry.
“He put it right here,” the young woman said of the gun, pointing to her temple. “I thought he was going to shoot me.”
“I thought, ‘Just give it to him or he is going to kill you,’” she told News 2.
In an odd development, the stolen car was returned later Monday. It was undamaged, but the keys were missing.
The 18-year-old told News 2 she thinks she’s seen the carjackers in the complex before.
Metro police are currently searching for the suspects. They are described as two Hispanic men about 5 feet 3 inches tall with skinny builds. It’s believed they’re in their late teens and both were wearing black pants and black hooded sweatshirts. The gunman used a black semi-automatic handgun.
