A homeowner on Detroit’s west side shot an intruder who was holding him and his wife at gunpoint during a robbery on Monday evening.
According to local media, two armed men ordered the homeowner and his wife into their house and then down into the basement. The armed robbers repeatedly told the homeowner to turn around, but the homeowner replied that if he was going to be killed, the robbers would have to do it to his face. When one of the robbers turned toward the stairs, the homeowner grabbed a gun he kept in the basement and shot one of the assailants, causing both to flee.
“Of course I was scared, who wouldn’t be?” the homeowner told Detroit’s 7 Action News. “Some goon has a gun to your head and tells you he’s going to shoot you because you’ve seen his face.
