Maxi was pumping gas into his vehicle at the Food Bag convenient store on Main Street around 6:25pm when he felt his SUV "shaking a bit" then saw a man behind the wheel.
Maxi said that he did not see the man get into his car because his gas tank is on the other side.
Maxi's first instinct was to run after his stolen vehicle but a passerby shouted to him that the man had a gun.
Luckily, Maxi spotted a Danbury police cruiser and stopped the officer to tell him what happened and described what his vehicle looked like.
The police were able to quickly catch up with the stolen vehicle, which crashed into a stone wall near Hilltop Manor, which compelled Voute to exit the SUV and make his way to the I-84 highway where he was shot and killed after exposing his handgun to a Connecticut State trooper.
Now that the chaotic incident is over, Maxi is hoping that State Police will allow him to access his vehicle that is located at the Troop A Barracks in Southbury. Inside his SUV are books he needs for classes he is taking in Waterbury and electrician tools he needs for work.
"They want to keep the car for investigation," Maxi said. "But I will go to Southbury (Monday). I have books and tools that I really need."
