A man with a legally concealed handgun shot two armed robbers when three teenagers attempted to rob him at a Detroit bus stop Sunday night.
The shooter’s brother, going by the alias Tremain, told Fox 2 Detroit that his brother had just gotten off work when three armed teenagers approached him demanding his money.
Tremain described his brother’s ordeal saying, “They threatened him and told him if he moved they were going to blow him which is a term for I’m going to kill or shoot you if you move.” One robber then went and pulled $220 out of the victim’s pocket. As the criminals celebrated their recent haul, the shooter saw his opportunity to make a move.
The shooter fired a shot into 16-year-old’s chest, and shot the 17-year-old in the leg. The other teen fled the scene before he was shot. (RELATED: Armed Citizen Shoots And Kills Waffle House Robber)
The two teenagers that were shot went to a local hospital after fleeing, and told the hospital staff they had been shot while walking down the street. However, police quickly figured out they were the suspects the police were looking for. Both teenagers shot remain in the hospital, and the 16-year-old is in critical condition.
Tremain, who also can legally conceal a handgun in Michigan, feels this incident is an example of why the right to conceal a weapon is important saying, “I believe you should have the right to protect yourself from any danger. We should be able to walk and go where we want freely and not be in fear of our life that that’s why I believe your CPL is protecting you from any danger you may come across.”
