Detroit Resident Turns Tables On Muggers

Just weeks after a Detroit resident was approved for concealed carry, the man protected himself during an attempted mugging. Three teens, at least one with a gun, approached him and demanded his money. The victim handed over $220. While the teens were momentarily distracted by counting the money, the victim drew his own gun and fired. One teen was shot in a leg; another was shot in the chest; the third ran away. The two injured suspects fled on foot while the victim called 911. The injured pair showed up at Sinai Grace Hospital, claiming that they were held up and shot while they were walking down the street. The case has been handed over to the Wayne County prosecutor’s office. No charges will be brought against the armed citizen. (Fox 2 Detroit, Detroit, Mich., 10/19/15)
