A man in New Orleans, Louisiana is recovering from gunshot wounds after he attempted to carjack someone.

WVUE reports that 23-year-old Johnathan Edwards attempted to carjack an adult male early Friday morning and that's when shots were fired.

However, it was not the suspect firing the gun, this time it came from the would-be victim of this crime.

Edwards was hit many times by the victim's shots and according to NOPD, the man who was shot is being treated in a local hospital.
