A 47-year-old woman was shot at and carjacked Wednesday night on Detroit's west side, and police believe the culprits may be teenagers.

The carjacking took place about 9:15 p.m. in the area of Pilgrim and Santa Rosa, said Dontae Freeman, a Detroit police spokesman. The woman had pulled over to address car trouble with her 2006 silver Chevy Impala, and got out of her vehicle to assess it.

At that point, a male, believed to be around 16, shot out one of the Impala's windows, police said. The victim got back in the vehicle and tried to drive off, but a second suspect stopped her from leaving.

Ultimately, she surrendered the vehicle and the suspects fled.

Police describe the first suspect as a black male, 5 feet 7 inches tall, with dark skin and curly hair. He wore a white T-shirt and was armed with a handgun.

There was no detailed description of the second suspect, but he's believed to be the same age and roughly the same size as the first suspect.
