  • Jesse Rutledge, an 88-year-old Tuskegee airman who served in World War II as a gunner on a B-25, was carjacked in Detroit in broad daylight on Saturday, Channel 7 Action News reports.

    “He said,” ‘N*gga give me your keys’ and racked his gun back,” Rutledge said one of the carjackers told him. He was leaving a barbershop when three young men rushed out of an abandoned building and ambushed him. One of the young men pointed a gun in the war hero’s face and demanded that he give up the keys to his 1999 Jeep Cherokee.

    At first, Rutledge actually thought he knew the teens.

    “They were little guys and had hoods on,” Rutledge said. “And that little one had the gun. That’s when I really got upset. I was thinking they knew me because I’ve been around (the barbershop) so long.”
