Carjacking/arrest: A woman, 41, picked up a man downtown early yesterday and drove him to the 2300 block of Wichita Ave., where a boy got into the car. The woman was told to drive to Park Heights and Woodland avenues, where she was struck with a metal object, robbed and forced out of her 1990 Oldsmobile. The woman called police. At Carlins Park and Druid Park drives, the car was stopped by Officer Courtney Todman. The man got out and pointed what appeared to be a weapon at Todman, who fired one shot.
