Two men with shotguns carjacked a Ford Fusion early Thursday in southwest Colorado Springs, police said.

Police were called just before 1:30 a.m. to investigate the reported carjacking at East Cheyenne Road and Aspen Avenue just west of Interstate 25.

The victim told police that a black Jeep Cherokee pulled in front of the 2006 Ford Fusion and two men holding shotguns jumped out.

"Get out of the car!" yelled one of the men, according to the victim.

The man then smashed the passenger side window with the butt of his shotgun. All three people who were in the Ford ran away and the men drove away in the Ford and the Cherokee.

Anyone with information about the carjacking should call Colorado Springs police at 444-7000.
