Fulton County police are looking for the gunman who carjacked a sport utility vehicle Sunday night while two sisters ages 5 and 6 were asleep in the back seat.
Channel 2 Action News reported that the girls were riding with their stepfather on Halligan Point in south Fulton County around 7 p.m. when another vehicle pulled in front of the Jeep Wrangler and forced it to a stop.
A man got out of the second vehicle, pointed a gun at the stepfather and forced him out of the Jeep, Channel 2 reported.
About an hour later, a woman on Ashington Court less than a mile away discovered the Jeep abandoned in a cul-de-sac, and called police.
“She went inside her house, came back out and heard what sounded like a child crying,” Fulton County police spokesman Scott McBride said.
The girls, who were still inside the abandoned Jeep, were quickly reunited with their mother.
“Oh my God, I’m just so happy, because I was so scared,” mom Otura Lista told the station. “That was the worst night of my life.”
