One of two girls charged with killing Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar in Washington, DC, took a plea deal this week, according to published reports.

The 15-year-old carjacker pleaded guilty to the murder of 66-year-old Anwar, an Uber Eats delivery driver, who was thrown from his car and killed during an attempted carjacking on March 23.

In return for pleading guilty to murder, prosecutors agreed to drop other charges - armed carjacking, robbery and aggravated reckless driving, DailyMail.com reported.

She will be sentenced on June 4 and, as part of the plea deal, will serve a maximum of six years in a juvenile detention center, until she is 21.

Court proceedings for minors are closed to the public and their criminal records are sealed for life.

A 13-year-old accomplice was also charged as a juvenile in the crime.

The girls targeted the father-of-three as he delivered food for Uber Eats in the southeast section of D.C.

Chilling cell phone video shows Anwar leaning halfway out of his car, telling a bystander "they're kids", as the oldest girl sped off -- with Anwar still holding on to the steering wheel.

Seconds later, the car lost control, overturned and crashed, throwing Anwar from the vehicle. He died from severe head injuries.

As the victim lay dying, one of the teens is overheard saying her cell phone was still in the car.

A shocking viral video shows the final moments of a delivery driver's life after two teenage girls carjacked him in Washington, DC.

The 13- and 15-year-old girls have been charged as adults in the death of 66-year-old father-of-three Mohammad Anwar, who was killed when he was thrown from his speeding car.

Anwar, a delivery driver for Uber Eats, was working in the southeast section of D.C. when two girls attempted to carjack him.

Cell phone video footage shows Anwar leaning halfway out of his car, as a girl wearing an orange hoodie attempts to push him out of his car.

Anwar tells a bystander "they're kids", while holding on to the steering wheel of his car.

Anwar had put the car in park, but one of the teenagers shifted the transmission into drive and hit the accelerator. The car sped off -- with Anwar still holding on for dear life.

Two loud bangs are heard on the video as the open driver's side door impacted two metal light poles during the car's route.

Seconds later, the car lost control, overturned and crashed, leaving Anwar sprawled on the sidewalk near death from severe head injuries.

Several National Guardsmen are seen on the video helping the teenagers out of the wrecked vehicle.

As her victim lay dying, one of the teens is overheard saying, "Please, my phone is in there. My phone!"

Twitter users criticized CNN for calling the murder an "accident" -- and D.C. mayor Muriel Bower was dragged for appearing to blame the victim by reminding residents to lock their cars to prevent auto theft.

There's a new sheriff in town. Chicago's violent crime has gone unchecked for far too long. Now the Biden administration is doing something about it.

Chicago's violence has impacted victims as far south as Georgia. Gun violence and murders spiraled out of control in Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs during the lockdowns in 2020.

Frightened Chicago residents reached out to Washington for help. That help has come in the form of severe prison sentences for federal crimes such as carjackings.

A carjacker in Chicago now faces life in prison rather than the customary bail and a slap on the wrist.

The FBI's field office in Chicago tweeted on Thursday: "Federal time for a federal crime. If you carjack a vehicle in #Chicago, you could face a lifetime behind bars."

The FBI continued:

"...but it's just a car.

In reality, it's so much more. It's a victim, it's a trauma, and sometimes it's a life.

Violent carjackings happen at gunpoint with repeat offenders pointing weapons at innocent people. Rushing to escape, carjackers cause accidents that claim more lives.

No one should have to live in fear of being carjacked. It's a big issue, and it deserves a big response. We’re partnering with law enforcement and the courts—both federally and locally—to investigate and prosecute these crimes to the fullest extent of the law."

Chicagoans who are wary of lenient Chicago lawmakers expressed relief on Twitter.

On Twitter user wrote: "Bout f---in time."

Another wrote: "We Must take All Carjackings prosecutions Away from Kimberly Foxx. Charge these so call teenagers Federally as adults. Additionally, FBI Chicago must look into any and All connections between Kim Foxx and the Chicago gangs. Look under the hood."

And a third Twitter user wrote: "Thankfully there are honorable men and women that will do the job that @SAKimFoxx refuses to do!"

A 13-year-old girl was dragged for several miles when she tried to escape her family's SUV that had been carjacked from a parking lot.

According to the Wichita Police Department, Brianna Ibarra was sitting in an SUV that was idling outside a restaurant while her family was inside picking up food just before noon on February 6.

Brianna was in the back seat on the driver's side of the SUV when a man jumped into the driver's seat and drove off.

The frightened teenager became entangled in the seatbelt when she opened the rear passenger door to escape the fleeing vehicle.

A motorist witnessed a grey Ford Escape dragging a young girl who was hanging outside the vehicle "traveling westbound on Kellogg at Meridian".

The witness followed the SUV and called 911.

Officers who responded to the scene saw the suspect stop the vehicle at Kellogg and West Street and flee on foot.

The suspect was captured by police and later identified as 34-year-old Kevin Palmer of Wichita.

Brianna was pronounced dead at the scene.

"This is one of the saddest cases I have been associated with in my over 28 years of law enforcement," said Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay in a press release. "WPD sends its thoughts and prayers to family, friends, and others affected by this tragic incident."

Palmer, who has a lengthy criminal history, is being held without bail at the Sedgwick County Jail on several charges, including felony murder, first-degree murder, and capital murder.

A GoFundMe account raised over $45,000 of a $75,000 goal for the "unexpected loss of a child."

The manager of a fast food restaurant in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood is demanding answers from city officials after she was put on hold while trying to report a carjacking attempt.

City leaders and business owners have been working together on a plan to curb high crime in Atlanta's most affluent neighborhood, home to rapper Cardi B, singer Tyrese Gibson, and the governor of Georgia.

Karen Harris, the manager of Ru San's Sushi and Seafood in Buckhead, wants the city to do more to address crime, Fox 5 News reports.

"It certainly isn't the responsibility of our staff to catch the bad guy," said Harris, "That responsibility falls on our elected officials and our mayor."

"It's always been a safe place for our patrons in the community to walk and get great food," said Harris.

According to Harris, a customer left his child in his car parked outside the restaurant to pick up a to-go order on Saturday. She said a man attempted to break into the car and the child ran inside the restaurant to get help.

Staff members snapped photos of the man fleeing the area. This screengrab shows an employee on the phone with 911 while the suspect flees in the background.

"The concerning part was our employees were on hold with 911," said Harris, "Luckily, one of our employees knew an APD detective who she called who was able to dispatch APD."

Police arrested the carjacker and identified him as 34-year-old Andrew Robert Fike. Fike was booked into the Fulton County jail and charged with attempting to enter a vehicle, obstruction, loitering and prowling.

Atlanta's Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms recently addressed the high crime in Atlanta. Bottoms privately expressed support for the "Buckhead Security Plan” which includes sending up drones over Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza and using metal detectors at the doors and drug sniffing dogs inside the malls.

A Black Lives Matter activist who led protests calling for justice for Breonna Taylor was, ironically, shot and killed during a carjacking, his mother confirmed.

Hamza "Travis" Nagdy, 21, was shot and killed during a carjacking near the University of Louisville campus before 12:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 23, Louisville police say.

In her Facebook post, Nagdy's mother, Christine Muimneach, said that her "Beautiful and intelligent son" had been killed in a carjacking.

About 100 mourners attended a candlelight vigil for Nagdy in Jefferson Square Park on Monday night.

Nagdy led protests for Taylor with his familiar red and white megaphone, calling for police reform and to defund the police.

Taylor was shot and killed by police during a botched raid in March.

Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, who reached a multimillion dollar settlement with the city, paid tribute to Nagdy on Facebook.

"It's somethings I will never understand it's also somethings, I know I'm not suppose to question but I need clarity about 2020," she wrote. "RIP Travis you were amazing and I was honored to have you standing for Bre... Another beautiful soul lost as we continue to fight for justice!!"

State Rep. Charles Booker, a Democrat, tweeted: "We've suffered a great loss. Travis Nagdy, a young leader committed to the fight for justice, is gone. As we marched for Breonna Taylor, it was often Travis and his megaphone leading the way. A bullet took his breath, but we still hear his voice. Rest in Power, young Brother."

Black and brown men who are killed by Black men are given low priority by Black Lives Matter, a far left organization that stages political protests when Black men are killed by white police.

Atlanta police released a sketch of a suspect wanted in connection with multiple carjackings and robberies of women in the Atlanta area.

Police are investigating at least four carjacking incidents involving the same man that began at the end of September.

The man's latest victim, a woman who asked to remain anonymous, was punched and dragged from her car on Oct. 9, just after 4 p.m., outside the Dump, a furniture store in the affluent Buckhead neighborhood in northwest Atlanta.

The woman told 11Alive News she was sitting in her car near the store's entrance after loading a rug. A Black man opened the back door and asked if she and her mom were picking up furniture.

The victim politely said no, but the man did something unexpected.

"He climbed in the car, shut the door, and I just knew, oh my God," the victim told 11Alive.

The carjacker ordered her to drive off, threatening to kill her. But the victim was concerned for her 76-year-old mother in the passenger seat, so she resisted.

"My voice was shaky and I was like, 'This is my mother' and I'm like, 'Get out of my car!'" she said. "Then he grabs me, starts pulling me over the center console, my mom starts hitting him on the back to let me go."

The victim yelled for her mother to run inside the store to get help as she continued to struggle with the carjacker.

"He just throws a right hook into my left eye, just goes boom," she said. The man dragged her out of the car and drove off.

Police located her car days later at the Summit Condos in Sandy Springs, where the man carjacked another driver and forced that victim to drive him to an ATM.

Police believe the same suspect carjacked three women and forced them to drive to an ATM.

The Buckhead victim told 11Alive she felt lucky because she was dragged from her car.

"I cannot imagine how these women feel about complying and having to drive to these ATM machines," she said. "To be driving around and be scared to death for minutes upon minutes."

A St. Louis woman fought back against an armed carjacker who attempted to rob her and drive away in her car.

According to KSDK News, the victim told police she was robbed and carjacked after stopping to get her paycheck at a business in the 1000 block of North Vandeventer.

She said an armed robber approached her as she returned to her car in the parking lot. She jumped into her car, grabbed her own gun and shot the robber as he drove off in her car.

Moments later, police responded to a 911 call about an accident with injuries in the 3700 block of Finney Avenue, about a half mile away from the scene of the carjacking.

Police found the victim's stolen car with a man inside who was suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The carjacking victim was treated for a leg injury, which she told police happened after she fell from her car during the carjacking.

The victim was not charged.

Lori claims she tried to pull the guy out of the car when she remembered he couldn't go anywhere because she had the key fob in her hand.

As she walked away, another suspect rolled up and snatched a duffle bag out of the Rolls-Royce trunk.

Lori told police the duffle bag contained only clothes.

Police drove to the Whole Foods were Lori bought her groceries to review the surveillance video to determine if anyone followed her home from the high end grocery store.

The Internet immediately doubted Lori's story.
