    Teen tries to rob Detroiter, ends up shot by victim
    George Hunter / The Detroit News
    Detroit -- A 17-year-old would-be armed robber had the tables turned on him this morning when his intended victim pulled out his own gun and shot the teen, police said.

    Now, instead of the money he allegedly sought to steal, the teen will get a lengthy hospital stay -- and, if he recovers and is convicted, a lengthy prison sentence.

    The incident happened about 5 a.m. this morning behind an apartment building at 1670 Oakman, Detroit Police spokesman John Roach said.


    "The 17-year-old came up behind a 32-year-old man behind the apartment building and tried to rob him at gunpoint," Roach said. "But the 32-year-old had a CCW (a license to carry a concealed weapon), and had his own sidearm with him. He pulled his weapon and they exchanged gunfire."

    When the shooting was over, the 32-year-old had only suffered a minor injury to the head, while the alleged bandit was seriously wounded. He was taken to an area hospital, where he remains in critical condition, Roach said.

    "If he recovers, he'll likely be charged with armed robbery, and probably attempted murder," Roach said.

    Finally, the good guys get some press. Not everyone in Detroit with a gun is a thug. Hopefully, there will be more of these kinds of stories published.

    Sounds like the reason we all carry. I hope that the GG's minor head wound heals well.

    Let's hope he succumbs to his wounds so he don't have bragging rights in prison

    Amazing !!!
    The reporter did not call the BG a "victim", no derogatory connotation about the GG. What's wrong with this newspaper ???

    Seriously, I see more and more SD shootings reported in a neutral/positive way. Would the media start to understand ???

    And 60 mins said they could not find any cases where a CCW holder used his gun in self defense!
