High School Coach Shoots Two Attackers In School Parking Lot.

http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/news/man-shot-near-martin-luther-king-jr-high-school-in-detroit

(WXYZ) - Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women's basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.

Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.

The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police.

SNIP

Police sources say the coach has a Concealed Pistol License and is reportedly a reserve police officer. They say he is fully cooperating with authorities.

The robbers were aged 16 and 15. The 16-yr old died in the robbery attempt.

The school has surveillance video that backs up the coach's story.

Reserve police officers are not graduates of a police academy. They are civilian volunteers who help police out, under the direct supervision of a regular police officer. Usually they do things like directing traffic at events thereby freeing up some regular officers for more involved police work.

It appears that the teen robbers didn't pay much attention to the school being a gun-free zone. Fortunately, the coach was able to legally carry a gun too.

1. Is it confirmed that it was legally carried?

I know he had a permit but how about the fact he was on school property, wouldn't that make it illegal?

6. All of this could have been prevented

 

if only the school had posted a "robbery free" zone sign.

11. They were old enough to know better.

If someone is robbing me, I am not going to ask his age before I defend myself.

Life is always ready to give a person their final exam early if they do something stupid.
