A Niagara Falls man told police a man with a shotgun tried to carjack him early Wednesday morning on Falls Street, according to a police report.
The victim told police he left an apartment on Falls Street between 24th and 25th streets just before 12:30 a.m. when a man followed him to his car and pointed a shotgun at his head, according to the report.
The gunman told the man to get into the passenger seat and that he was coming with him.
As the would-be carjacker started the car, the victim fled the vehicle and went back to his friend's apartment.
The robber drove away with the victim's 2007 gray Mazda 6.
