A terrifying moment happened Monday evening in St. Paul for a number of children that were inside of a vehicle. 

A 14 year-old-girl says she and her siblings were forced out of their vehicle by a man at gunpoint.


It happened around 6 p.m. near the intersection of Stillwater Avenue East and North Hazel Street in St. Paul.
The teen was in the car with two younger sisters waiting for their mother inside a restaurant when a man forced them out of the car.

"When he told me to get out of the car, I instantly saw the gun," the teen said. "I was like, I started shaking."

A block away, police were looking for a man after he exchanged shots with officers. The teen believes it's the same man who stole their car.

"The police were following him and he decided to actually let me and my sisters go," the teen said. "I thank God for that."

 No one was hurt and the suspect remains on the run.
