A motorist changing a tire was carjacked Wednesday in Algiers by two people who stopped to supposedly ask if he needed help, according to New Orleans police.

It happened about 2:30 p.m. near Behrman Highway and Garden Oaks Drive.

The 54-year-old man told police that one of the suspects approached him with a gun and demanded his vehicle after he had finished changing the tire.

In an apparently unrelated incident, a 21-year-old man was driving near the same intersection about five hours later “when he heard gunshots and discovered he had been shot,” according to a police log.
