Police say the men took the man who had been driving the Expedition to the corner of Lawton Avenue and Vine Street and put him out of the vehicle. Hardy is accused of firing a gun at the victim.
Two officers spotted the vehicle after police were put on alert.
At some point, the carjackers tried to run over officers who were out of their car, according to police.
