WARREN (WWJ) – A husband, wife and their teenage son were shot by a robber in their own home, when the dad tried to fight back.
That’s according to police, who said the incident happened Sunday night on Toepfer, near Van Dyke Ave., north of 8 Mile Road.
Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green said three robbers came knocking on the family’s door just before 11 p.m. — all concealing their faces; two of them with guns drawn.
When the intruders announced it was a hold up, the father — a 57-year-old man — pulled out a BB gun and began beating one on of the robbers with it, Green said.
That’s when that same suspect shot all three family members.
