Two men who went to a Houston-area Dodge dealer for a test drive fought with the salesman and put him in the trunk of the red Dodge Challenger and drove away. The salesman was able to text his boss from the trunk, then free himself using the interior emergency trunk release.
Houston Police Department Lt Larry Crowson said, “He was able to open the trunk using the emergency latch. The two suspects got out, tried to put him in the trunk, he didn’t feel like he wanted to go back in the trunk, got in a fight with them, was able to get the pistol away from one of the suspects and shoot one of the suspects.” (KXAN)
The suspects are still at large, and it is unclear if either of them were actually shot by the salesman.
