Las Vegas, NV –-(Ammoland.com)- Local News 4, ClickOnDetroit.com reported this week (7/24/2016) police say the driver of a white van followed a Dodge Challenger until it stopped at a liquor store on West Seven Mile Road and Heyden Street.
The driver of that van waited for the customer to exit the liquor store and then approached his intended victim with a gun in an apparent attempted carjacking.
Unfortunately for would-be criminal, the targeted driver had a valid concealed pistol license. Given the bad guys close proximity, the Dodge driver grabbed the barrel of the carjacker’s gun.
He then pulled out his own weapon and fired 10 rounds at the attempted carjacker.
The suspect fired back with 4 or 5 shots before fleeing according to investigators.
Sergeant Robert Wellman, of the Detroit Police Department said Officers are searching for the suspect.
In a separate incident, Detroit Police are investigating another early Saturday morning carjacking that left a 24-year-old man dead. Four people were carjacked around 2:30 a.m. while in a 2007 Chrysler Sebring.
