WXYZ) - 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. They say he is fully cooperating with authorities.
Crime scene tape could be seen on Lafayette Boulevard and also around the back parking lot of the school near the gym.
Students could be seen being walked to their cars late Friday night.
The Detroit Public Schools issued this statement to 7 Action News:
At approximately 7:30pm DPS Police responded to a call of attempted robbery at Martin Luther King Jr. High School. DPS Police are cooperating with DPD which is handling the lead investigation.

We are very relieved that all students and DPS personnel and representatives involved are safe and were unharmed. Preliminary reports are that shots were fired during an attempted robbery of a member of the coaching team of the school’s girls basketball program by two assailants outside the school. There was one fatality and one injured suspect in serious condition.

The school has many security features which were in place at the time of the incident as well as a full security plan as do all DPS schools. These will be reviewed as the regularly are after any incidents. There will be counselors available at the school Monday morning for students and faculty members.

--Steve Wasko, Detroit Public Schools Spokesperson

So one of them is in the hospital recuperating at taxpayer's expense?

I believe Coach should be allowed to take his firearm to junior's hospital room and finish the job.

I see many problems with this. The government needs to ban men coaching girls sports especially in HS and lower. They also need to ban grown men wearing chain necklaces.

A public school in Detroit probably ought to have a nuclear deterrent.

blaise should be along shortly to ask you what's the point of making this thread?

Also, you should be informed that this is a Q. However, it's understandable you didn't know LimpStream shared it, because he posted it in a thread that I started because he's too stupid to start his own.

So, are you going to start a vigil for those two poor disadvantaged youths who were callously gunned down by that evil gun-toting lunatic?

No, because it appears to be justifiable homicide.

He should have just shot to wound him in the shoulder or the foot or something.

I learned that from reading every fucking thread that's posted in this shithole when a cop shoots some fool that needs shooting.

No, no, no. He should have taken them to court to see if they're guilty or not. Who is he to be the judge?

Because a policeman doing his job isn't national news - and, unfortunately, neither is one more dead black urban kid with a gun.

I did notice, however, that when I Googled "coach shoots attacker", more than half of the first page of results are from conservative sites - FOXNews, The Washington Times, Breitbart, Glenn Beck's site The Blaze, and so on. Make of that what you will.

I've heard a lot of stories about the perfect reason for owning a gun legally in the past few months. They're usually buried under the bigger headlines about people abusing guns or being stupid with guns. It's stupid. The sad thing is, I don't even own a gun and possibly never will.
