DETROIT (WWJ) – Police say they are questioning a Detroit man after he reportedly turned the tables on would-be-thieves Saturday night outside of the Grandland Shopping Center in Detroit.

A 50-year-old man sitting in his car was allegedly approached by four men who brandished a gun and demanded he get out of the car. Before he could get out of the car, shots were fired.

What they didn’t know is the intended victim had his own gun.

He opened fire on them, killing one of the young men, a 17-year-old. The other suspects ran from the scene.

Police say the 50-year-old man, who was uninjured, has a permit to carry the weapon.

An investigation into the incident continues.
