Detroit Carry Permit Holder Thwarts Armed Robbery Attempt

posted on October 13, 2017

“I was stopped by two police officers; they told me to get out of my son’s room. 'You can't be here.'”

Cynthia Quinn told FOX-2 News that she just wanted to see her son, Sanchez, who had been shot. But her 29-year-old son wasn’t a shooting victim, he was the suspect in a robbery. Detroit police say that Quinn tried to rob two people outside a supermarket Sunday night—drawing his gun and demanding money. Unfortunately for Quinn, he drew his weapon on a concealed-carry permit holder, who slapped away the suspect's gun and fired in self-defense.

“I turned and looked and saw the other gentleman had a gun pointed at my face. I was able to knock his hand down and the gunfire rang out,” said the victim. The CPL holder's cousin was shot in the crossfire, and investigators say it’s fortunate they were armed, because otherwise neither might be alive today. Both the cousin and the suspect are expected to recover.
