DETROIT, MI — A Detroit home invasion was cut brutally short after the two thugs who broke into a resident’s home were badly beaten at their own game by a licensed concealed carrier.
After all, if you’re going to make a deadly threat, you need to be prepared to accept the consequences.
One of the two assailants pointed a firearm at the homeowner, and the reaction to that sent one to the hospital and another running for his life.
As The Detroit News reports:
Detroit Police are investigating a shooting early Friday morning involving a CPL-licensed homeowner who shot a 16-year-old juvenile following a break-in to his property.
Police said the unidentified 46-year-man received a “telephonic” message that the residence he owned was being burglarized in the 2900 block of Lakewood. He engaged the two suspects after one pointed a gun at the homeowner, and he shot the 16-year-old in the groin, right arm and back. The juvenile remains in critical condition at an unidentified hospital. Police said a handgun was recovered at the scene, and the homeowner is cooperating with authorities.
Another black male, who was wearing all black with no other description, escaped from the scene on foot.
As you may well know, Detroit is known for its rampant crime. Police do their very best to keep the streets safe, but there are only so many of them in a rough town.
But remember; responsibly-armed and vigilant citizens will help curb crime and make communities safe.
It is a shame that someone so young paid the piper for the pair’s terrible decision, but even winding up in the hospital in critical condition is a sight better than what home invaders can and should expect.
