Rap artist Cam'ron thwarts Lamborghini carjacking

New York hip-hop artist Cameron "Cam'ron" Giles was driving his royal blue 2006 Lamborghini and wearing what a friend later described as $200,000 worth of diamonds and other jewelry when he became victim of a would-be carjacking. At 12:17 a.m., Giles stopped at a light at New York and New Jersey avenues, according to the D.C. police. Two men in a burgundy Ford Expedition sport-utility vehicle pulled alongside. Police said one man got out of the SUV, armed with a gun. The man reportedly tried to take the Lamborghini but Giles cursed at him and sped away. That's when the man fired the gun and shot Giles in both arms, police said.
