Northeast District police said a 2003 Pontiac Aztek, stolen at gunpoint from a man on Wright Avenue early Sunday, was abandoned after being involved in an accident on Schuele Street.
The victim said he was sitting in the vehicle, which is registered to his grandmother, when two men ordered him out of the auto. One was brandishing a shotgun and the other a pistol. The carjackers were last seen driving the Aztek west on East Delavan Avenue.
Police said the Aztek was recovered in the 100 block of Schuele Street at 12:44 a.m. after a property damage accident, but the carjackers fled on foot and were not located.
