After a man spotted two individuals jump into his car at a North Carolina gas station Thursday morning, he put his concealed carry license to use, WJZY-TV reported.
What happened next?
The owner of the car — who's in his 20s — told the station that he "unloaded" his gun's "entire magazine" at his car — "aiming at the tires."
Not that it convinced the culprits to give up right then and there, apparently. In fact, they reportedly showed a weapon as they drove off from the Circle K in Charlotte — on at least three flat tires, WJZY said.
The concealed carrier told the station it was surreal to fire shots at his own car.
What happened to the suspects?
With apparently only a single serviceable tire at their disposal, the suspects didn't get too far.
WJZY said a police helicopter was flying in the area and located the abandoned car nearby — and sources told the station that not two, but four suspects were taken into custody in connection with the incident.
