Armed Indianapolis Woman Fends Off Carjackers

An Indianapolis woman was able to fend off a group of guys who pulled a gun on her while trying to steal her car.

Kari Bird just started law school and continues to work full time. Bird got home at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday and when she got out of her car, a group of three or four young guys approached her.

“I really didn’t think too much about it, one of (them) was smiling,” Bird said.

He was smiling, but he quickly pulled out a gun.

“He told me to … give him my keys,” Bird said.

She did turn over her keys, but realizing all her law books and belongings were in the car, Bird made a quick decision. With the gun still pointed at her, she reached into her center console to pull out her own gun.
