HAMDEN, Conn. — A 20-year-old New Haven man has been arrested in connection with alleged attempted carjacking where he was shot by the owner of the car, say police. 

During the evening on May 29, officers responded to Alltown Fresh on Dixwell Avenue to a report of an attempted carjacking.

Police say an investigation showed a Meriden man entered the store while his car was running. When he was inside the store, police say a stolen car with three people inside it drove into the parking lot. 

Police said Dulyn Foreman, 20, of New Haven, got out of the stolen car and got into the victim's car, say police. Foreman then put the car into reverse and almost hit a woman that was trying to intervene.  

As Foreman try to drive away, the owner of the car ran from the store towards his car. Police say Foreman then got out of the car with a gun and the owner of the car removed his own gun, firing at the other man.
