A 91-year-old Detroit man became alarmed when he was approached by a younger male in his 20s, who was acting erratically. The young male pointed an unknown object at him, outside of Rite Aid, and was seemingly trying to rob the senior. It was at this point when the 91-year-old warned the younger male that he had a concealed carry license. However, when that did not ward off the attack, he pulled the trigger.
According to WDIV, the elderly man began feeling uneasy when a man his 20s approached him in the parking lot of a Rite Aid in Eastpointe and pointed an unknown object at him.
The alleged would-be robber was said to be acting in an “erratic manner” and followed the 91-year-old man, police said.
The older man responded by firing a shot, hitting the suspect in the neck, police said.
The wounded attacker ran after being shot, but the police were able to quickly track him down.
