While Cooksey was in the store, he glanced out the window and noticed that the driver's side door of the truck stood open.

A 9-year-old IN boy frightened off a would-be carjacker by pointing a pellet gun at the suspect's head on Tuesday.

"As soon as he opened the door, I got scared", the boy explained. Cooksey told WTHR he left the truck running with his son inside.

That scared the man enough to get him out of the truck, but then he ran into the next auto down.

The suspect then moved to a black TrailBlazer, which was also running, jumped inside, and drove off. Cooksey exited the store, told the TrailBlazer owner to jump into his truck, and they gave chase.

"I was just glad he didn't wreck into anybody", Sparling told WTHR.

Cooksey told Sparling to jump in and they chased down the suspect as officers were called.

Cooksey added that he wanted to "go catch the guy" and said that it was simply instinct that compelled him to help out.

Kyle Sparling watched as the carjacker took off with his Trail Blazer, while he bought Doritos.

"I thought he was going to come back at me", Cooksey said.

A man who allegedly tried to steal a pickup truck on Christmas day didn't get very far, thanks to a 9-year-old boy.

Sparling was relived no one was hurt. "That was my biggest fear, I think", Kyle admits.

Larimore was grateful to have helped.
