A man from Starr County is behind bars tonight after being accused of carjacking a couple who offered to give him a ride.
24-year-old Jessie Gonzalez, Jr. Was arrested after he allegedly tried to steal a 2007 Chevy Tahoe at gun point from a couple who had offered to give him a lift.
That’s when the male victim and Gonzalez got into a struggle ending with Gonzalez being shot in the knee, but even after being shot, Gonzalez was able to flee with the vehicle.
The stolen vehicle was later pulled over with Gonzalez and another man on board.
Gonzalez is expected to face aggravated robbery charges tomorrow.
