From the Detroit Free Press:
A bank customer in Warren acted within his rights when he opened fire on a bank robber on Monday afternoon, sending him to the hospital with non-critical injuries, according to the city's mayor.Truth, justice, and the American way win out.
"I'm happy that no one was seriously injured," Mayor Jim Fouts said. "He apparently exercised some caution by not shooting the robber in a vital area."
The robbery unfolded in the late afternoon at the Citizens Bank near 9 Mile and Van Dyke. The 43-year-old assailant entered the bank with a gun and had procured "a large amount" of cash from the bank when, on the way out, he appears to have threatened a 63-year-old customer with his gun, according to Fouts.
That customer turned out to be carrying a concealed firearm for which he had a permit, the mayor said. The customer managed to pull out his own weapon and shoot the suspect three times: once in each arm and once in a leg.
