      A man has been wounded during a gunfight with a carjacking suspect who moments earlier had robbed a woman of her SUV at a Detroit gas station.

      Police say the carjacker also drove the stolen Chevrolet Traverse into a canal off the Detroit River on the city's east side Thursday morning.

      Witnesses followed the SUV after it was taken at gunpoint about 8 a.m. The carjacker got into a gunfight with one of the witnesses after jumping from the Traverse and letting the vehicle roll into the canal.

      Police say the witness has a concealed pistol license and was shot in the arm. The carjacker then drove off in his Ford Focus.

      Police couldn't immediately say if the carjacker was wounded.
