When Hashim Fannin arrived at his local Family Dollar, he met someone who was looking for a different kind of discount – a carjacker. But the carjacker, 61-year-old Egdar Horn, almost paid the ultimate price.
After Horn jumped into Fannin’s car, Fannin pulled his gun.
“He told me, ‘You know what this is,’” Fannin said. That is when Fannin says he pulled his gun out.
“I asked him to get out the car, probably not in those exact words,” Fannin said.
“I told him no, there’s no leaving, leaving was before you hopped into my car … at this point there is not leaving,” Fannin said.
The car owner kept the suspect, Edgar Horn, 61, at gunpoint face down in the parking lot for several minutes until police arrived.
“You were not trying to rob me,” Fannin said to the man on cellphone video of the incident. “Do you just get into random people’s cars … you thought I was your friend … you thought I was your friend … so you woke up stupid this morning?”
Police arrived quickly and arrested Horn. They also proudly shook Fannin’s hand.
The incident was caught on a cellphone camera.
