MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are looking for a trio of carjacking suspects.

It happened around 2:15 p.m. Thursday at a car wash on 29 North Avalon Street.

The victim told police he saw a suspicious vehicle pull up while he was washing and drying his car. He said one of the three suspects came up to him from behind, pointed a handgun at him and demanded his keys.

The car the suspects came in is a 1999-2005 Chevrolet Impala that is gold aside from the left front quarter-panel, which is dark gray, police said. It has no hubcaps and has a doughnut tire on the right front wheel.
