    Bad guy with knife

    Article refers to CCW, but here in Michigan it's actually a CPL

    Police: Man turns knife on several people in Royal Oak's Holiday Market parking lot

    Police say man with CCW license pulled gun to stop knife-wielding man

    ROYAL OAK, Mich. -
    Royal Oak police said a 43-year-old man was threatening people with a knife Monday at the Holiday Market parking lot on South Main Street.

    Police said David Shuten, of Madison Heights, prompted several 911 calls as he attempted to break the driver's side window of a vehicle being driven by a 49-year-old man. Shuten was wielding a knife at the time, too.

    The driver got away from Shuten without being injured.

    Two customers in the parking lot witness the attack and started yelling at Shuten to drop the knife, police said. He turned his attention toward the couple and their infant son who were just two parking spaces away. He approached them with the knife drawn.

    Another customer, a certified CCW (carrying a concealed weapon) license holder, noticed Shuten moving toward the couple. He drew his gun and ordered Shuten to drop the knife.

    After several commands to drop the knife, Shuten finally sat on the ground. Royal Oak police officers arrived and arrested him without further incident.

    Police said thanks to the quick actions of the citizens in the parking lot, no one was injured.

    Shuten faces two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and received a $10,000 cash bond.

    Police already had a warrant for Shuten. He was wanted for violation of probation for resisting and obstructing a police officer in Oakland County.

    Probably should have been posted in the "In The News: Good, Bad, Ugly" forum. I thought this was going to be a "What would you do?" type scenario.

    But as it is, I'll have to say, good job for the permit holder. Probably saved the young couple with the infant from getting seriously hurt or killed.

    I wonder - Shuten has an outstanding warrant for resisting arrest. Yet, in this case, he simply drops the weapon and takes a seat to wait for the cops. Do perps fear armed citizens more than cops? Interested in throughts on this matter, especially from cops.
