Employee shot in carjacking at America's Tire store


A tire store employee was shot and injured Saturday morning in a carjacking in Mountain View, police said.

Shortly before 11:30 a.m. Saturday, a man approached two employees at the America's Tire store on El Camino Real at the State Highway 237 interchange, and carjacked - at gunpoint - a sedan at the business.

The carjacker shot one of the tire store employee in the leg; he was taken to a nearby hospital, where police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said the victim was listed in stable condition Saturday night.

No arrests had been made as of Saturday night, and police continue to investigate, Nelson said.
