Retired Police Sergeant Fights Back Against Burglars

posted on March 8, 2016

Two men were shot while attempting to break into the Detroit home of a retired police sergeant. The 70-year-old homeowner was in his living room around 1:35 p.m. last Tuesday when he heard a noise at his back door. The 37-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department confronted the two suspects, struggled with the intruders and fired. 

According to police, one of the suspects was shot in the back, and the homeowner was able to restrain him until the authorities arrived on the scene. The second suspect fled the home after being shot in the stomach and is still at large. The victim was uninjured during the incident, and police are continuing the search for the second suspect.
