A 15-year-old boy learned the hard way not to carjack a police officer. The boy has been treated for his wounds and will be charged with a felony.

CHICAGO, IL (Catholic Online) - The unnamed 15-year-old boy worked with a 17-year old accomplice identified as Kurits Flowers, to carjack an unnamed off-duty Chicago State University  Police Officer.

The kids used Twitter to lure the unsuspecting officer to the South Side to sell him a new iPhone. When he arrived, the 15-year old arrived in another vehicle and brandishing a gun ordered the officer to "Give me everything or I'll blow it up." They managed to steal $150 and an iPhone from the officer.

In the ensuing robbery, the officer identified himself and managed to obtain his gun. He fired his pistol at the teens who attempted to flee. The 15-year-old was hit. The older boy was captured and identified later.

The officer is doing fine, but the boys will be charged with felony armed robbery.
