Musician shot during carjacking (Rocky Mountain News, August 8, 2005)

Grammy-winning songwriter Marc Cohn is recovering from a gunshot wound to the head — the victim of an apparent carjacking attempt in downtown Denver late Sunday.

The injury was not life-threatening, police said.

The 46-year-old performer was riding in a car in the 1400 block of Stout Street at about 11:30 p.m. when a man fleeing RTD security guards waved a gun at the driver and tried to steal the vehicle. When the driver attempted to speed away, the suspect fired a round into the car, hitting Cohn, according to a Denver police report.
