Gunman shoots driver in carjacking attempt

        A motorist was shot Sunday by a man who attempted to steal his car at an Oakley car wash.

        The attempted carjacking occurred just before 10 p.m. at the intersection of Madison Road and Ibsen Avenue, police said. The male victim was undergoing surgery late Sunday at University Hospital. A nursing supervisor said the victim would be listed in critical condition while in surgery.

        The victim was outside his car at the car wash when the assailant approached and started to get into the vehicle, police said. The victim told the man not to get in the car and the man turned and fired two shots, one of which struck the victim in the stomach, police said. The shooter fled on foot.
