Philadelphia police shot at a carjacking suspect early Friday after the man crashed a stolen sport utility vehicle into a parked car in the city’s Kingsessing section.

The carjacking happened at a Gulf gas station at 60th Street and Lindbergh Boulevard in Southwest Philadelphia about 11 p.m. Thursday, 6ABC Action News reports. A 56-year-old man was struck over his head with a gun by the 29-year-old suspect, who hopped in the man’s 2014 Kia Sorento and drove away.

Police spotted the SUV in the area of 54th Street and Chester Avenue a few hours later. The suspect crashed into a parked car a short time later, and after exiting the vehicle he reportedly moved his hands toward his waistband, drawing fire from police.

The suspect was not struck by the gunfire, and he was taken into custody.

The carjacking victim received stitches for a cut to his head, according to the report.
