When Hashim Fannin pulled into an Atlanta, Georgia Family Dollar an alleged carjacker climbed into his passenger seat and said, “You know what this is?” Fannin responded by pulling his gun, ordering the man out of the car and onto the ground, then asking, “So you woke up stupid this morning?”
According to WSB-TV, Fannin had just pulled into a parking spot and his car doors had automatically unlocked when 61-year-old Edgar Horn allegedly opened the passenger door and climbed into the car. Fannin responded by drawing his gun and ordering Horn out.
He then held Horn at gunpoint until police arrived.
While waiting on police, Horn asked Fannin to just let him go. Fannin said, “I told him no, there’s no leaving, leaving was before you hopped into my car.”
In a cell phone video posted by WSB-TV, Fannin can be seen with his gun drawn, saying, “Just stay there and wait for the police, it’s that simple. What you doing getting in my car, you trying to rob me? You thought you were just going to take my [expletive]?”
When Horn responded that he wasn’t trying to rob anyone, Fannin asked, “So you woke up stupid this morning?”
