We're told the suspects drove up in a dark gray or black Ford Taurus. According to a family friend, all three suspects got out of the car and one suspect pointed a, 'large pistol' in the victim's face and said give me your keys. 

The thieves were last seen heading north on University in the stolen 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe.

The carjacking happened shortly before an armed robbery to an individual in the 5300 block of Woodline Drive South.
