70 Year-Old Girls B-Ball Coach Shoots Two Attackers While Walking Players to Their Cars (Video)

A 70 year-old girls basketball coach shot two attackers, killing one, after he was attacked while walking two players to their cars in the school parking lot.

WXYZ reported, via Free Republic:

Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.

Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.

The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police.

One of the attackers was found dead in the median on Lafayette Boulevard, and the other was taken to a local hospital, according to police sources. We’ve learned that both of the men had attended the high school, and one had been recently expelled.

Police sources say the coach has a Concealed Pistol License and is reportedly a reserve police officer.

    The way is should be. Legal gun owner using his GOD given right to protect himself, and his charges from harm. Since this is detroit, they are used to this so the 70 year old man won’t have to worry if the perps had skittles in their pockets.

    Perfect example of correct gun control.

    not rightly certain, but it seems to me that the
    elderly are scoring points for conceal & carry..

    Great story to read with my vodka and tonic. Ahhhhhhhhhhh……

  • jharp

    And Obama nor Congress is proposing anything to change anything that would not allow for the same thing. There is no handgun ban on the table. Nor is there any proposal to change concealed carry laws.

    And you know it.

  • Fuquay Steve

    Jharp you sound like you wish the coach had an ‘assault’ rifle. You also sound a little shrill. A nap may be in order.

  • Stephana

    hey harp, they are proposing to ban semi auto’s. That means pistols. They are also screaming confiscation. We can read, I guess you can’t.

    Haven’t you learned by now Dem Talking Points are LIES. Read the proposal before opening your trap. Save yourself from looking foolish.

    Score two for the good guys. Bet the perps were hoping to score easy drug money. If Obama were making coordinated military and police exercises with the intent on reviving the war on drugs, he’d get bipartisan praise. Likewise if we stamped out drugs and gangs, crime would drop so dramatically, people wouldn’t feel such a need for personal defense. Instead he’s preparing to go to war over gun control.

    One less bad guy…. HURRAH!

    SW Detroit was where the granny shot the attackers last week (of course she was no where near 70 and missed.). I left Detroit but went to Wayne State for college. Sounds like life in the D is certainly more exciting in the Obama years.

    JHarp, Doesnt Chicago and Washington DC have handgun bans? or did until recently… Many would if they could. No what would the guy have done if there were 4 or 5 of them and he only had 9 bullets ? They say trained cops miss about 50% of their shots under stress of the moment.

    In other words Liberals are nothing but turd eating garabage and until Obama gives up all his armed guards carrying automatic weapons and semi automatics… I say STFU… eat sh*t and die liberal scum.

    Gotta love it when somebody stupid enough to be a criminal gets what they have coming…. Think his mom will come out and claim her son was a goood boy who never hurt nobody ???? Never been in trouble before or was just turning his life around…despite the arms length wrap sheet.
