Quick-thinking mother saves herself, daughter during armed carjacking

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Police say a quick thinking mother saved herself and her daughter after a man attempted to carjack them at gunpoint.

50-year-old Shaughn Walker was taken to 201 Poplar on aggravated kidnapping and robbery charges.

"What do you do when you get in a spot attack like that? I mean what do you do?"

Think fast; that's what police said a Berclair mother did.

The mother told officers she had just loaded her daughter into her Nissan Pathfinder when Walker got into the SUV.

The victim told investigators Walker pointed a gun at her and said "drive."

However, the mother wasn't going to let Walker get away with her daughter in the vehicle.

She told her daughter in Spanish to get out of the SUV.

Once she was out, the mother got out too.

Thankfully they're okay, but Walker got away with the vehicle.

He didn't get far as police spotted him at the BP gas station on Wells Station.

They wanted to talk to him about another crime.

When they tried to arrest him, he fought back, and officers were forced to shoot him with a stun gun before they arrested him.

Walker's bond was set at $100,000.
