Your Detroit Armed Citizen Trifecta

posted on June 11, 2015

We couldn’t resist closing the circle with a third story of a brave Detroit woman standing up to criminals. A resident known to neighbors as “Ms. Dee” was asleep in her home around 2 a.m. when a group of men broke into her house and reportedly pointed a gun at her. “I was able to get to my gun,” she explained. “They didn’t know I had it. By that time, it was just gunfire.”

Ms. Dee was shot in the foot during the exchange, but she is expected to recover fully; she believes that she hit at least one of her assailants. She applied for a gun license after her home was burglarized on a previous occasion. Ms. Dee has survived cancer and is not prepared to give up on living: “I … think I’m a cat, because I keep just going through stuff and God keeps pulling me through it.”
