The Armed Citizen® November 4, 2016

Detroit carjacking suspects got a surprise when they picked an armed citizen as their target. Two men in a vehicle drove up near a man in his car late one evening. One of the criminals then got out, walked toward his target, pulled a gun and ordered the driver to exit his car. The motorist acted like he was complying, but he held a surprise for his attackers—he had a license to carry and was armed. After he got out of his automobile, the assailant and the driver exchanged gunfire, with the attacker taking a shot to the body. The injured bad guy climbed back into his car and his accomplice took him to a hospital. Police later arrested the suspects. (The Detroit News, Detroit, MI, 7/26/16)
