News stories of civilian self-defense seldom receive adequate media coverage. After all, armed good guys stopping violent felons does not make headlines like the lives of innocents being taken. Bias and agendas play their part, but the media does not cover an event that did not happen, such as a case where a good guy stopped a violent event before it it resulted in the loss of innocent life. However, these are exactly the type of stories we need to highlight to educate non gun owners before they head to the voting booth.
Victim Fights Back: Armed Robber Killed With Own Gun
DETROIT – An armed robbery on Detroit’s east side didn’t go as expected when a victim decided to fight back late Monday night.
Police say a botched armed robbery turned deadly when two robbers approached a man on Annott Street demanding cash. The victim was able to wrestle the gun away from one of the suspects—killing one armed suspect and wounding the other.
Officers say there was a third person involved, who they believe may have planned the attempted robbery. But authorities are not releasing names at this time.
Right now, the two surviving suspects are in police custody and the victim is cooperating with police.
