DETROIT, MICHIGAN — A father and son were near the 2400 block of Honorah in Detroit for an apparent meeting with a 15-year-old to sell a video game. The 15-year-old that they met produced a firearm to initiate a robbery.
At some point, the 15-year-old shot the son in the face. The father witnessed the shooting, and in turn drew his firearm and shot the 15-year-old dead.
Holly Lance, an officer and spokesperson with the Detroit Police Department, tells the News that the father then shot the suspect after witnessing the ordeal. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, and WWJ-950 reports Friday that the 15-year-old was last listed in critical condition at a medical facility.
There may be more to the story here, as the father was said to have been taken into custody after the shooting. read more
