    Retired police officer kills gunman in Burton

    Wednesday, July 1, 2009 7:52 AM EDT

    BURTON, Mich. (AP) — A retired police officer has shot and killed a masked gunman at a Flint-area poker room.

    WJRT-TV reports the gunman shot out the front door of the Palace Poker Room in Burton around 1 a.m. Wednesday before walking in and firing at least one round into the ceiling.

    He told the 30 to 60 people inside to hit the floor.

    WEYI-TV says two of the people in attendance were former police officers. One of them was armed and shot and killed the masked gunman.

    I used to live north of there. Sounds like the place is one dirtbag safer now.

    Ya,.. Out of 30-60 people,.. At least one person was smart enough to carry,... That is the way it should be, no-one gets hurt except the one that deserves it,. Good job,...

    Sounds like he picked the wrong crowd on the wrong day! The good thing is he'll never do it again.

    It's sad when anybody has to take a life. No forum foolishness here. I am glad the innocent was able to defend himself.
