Armed Customer Saves Detroit Liquor Store From An Attempted RobberyScreen Shot 2017-02-20 at 10.46.08 AM
Around 9 p.m. on Wednesday, two “would be” robbers entered a liquor store in Roseville, MI. Both of the suspects had their faces covered, were wearing gloves, and at least one was brandishing a gun. One of the suspects jumped up on the counter and pointed the weapon at one of the three employees working at the Little Brown Jug Party Store. Fortunately, the owner was enjoying a visit from a friend who also was armed.
The armed customer opened fire before the robbers could, forcing the robbers to flee. They ran out of the store and took off through the parking lot. One of the suspects dropped his firearm as he exited the store.
The owner of the store saw that the gun had been dropped and he ensured that it wasn’t touched until police arrived on the scene. Police are searching for two men who robbed the liquor store in the 26600 block of Gratiot Avenue. The store owner’s friend was legally in possession of his gun and isn’t facing any charges. Roseville Police said no one was injured during the botched robbery and officials are continuing to investigate the incident.
