PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities have identified a man who died after he carjacked a woman’s vehicle in Phoenix, sustained a gunshot wound and crashed.

Phoenix police say the man was 29-year-old Michael Medina.

They say Medina approached a 66-year-old woman as she pulled into her driveway Friday afternoon.

Medina asked to use her cellphone and when the woman refused, he pulled her out of the car and threw her onto the ground.

Her husband got a handgun from inside the house and fired several shots at the man as he drove away.

Medina was later found at a crash scene with a gunshot wound and inside a vehicle that matching the carjacking. He later died of his injuries at a hospital.

Police say the cause of death will be determined by an autopsy.
