(WDIV) One minute a woman and her 4-year-old son were shopping for balloons at a west Detroit dollar store. The next minute the woman has her son in her arms and she's running for her life.

She was carjacked at gunpoint in the middle of the day. The terrifying ordeal was caught on video. It shows the woman and boy leave the store. As soon as she unlocked the car doors two men wearing black hooded sweatshirts emerged from an abandoned building.

"I really couldn't see their faces. I just saw the gun. That's all I remember seeing," said the woman, who is not named in this story for her safety. "He approached the driver's side and that's when he jumped in my car, took the money and told me to give him the keys."
