DETROIT (WJBK) - Two guys walked in to a very busy Gents Barbershop at about 5:30 p.m. Friday on Whittier at Stratman on Detroit's east side. One with a gun said, "You know what time it is."
What the two bad guys didn't know was two customers were legally carrying handguns.
A man in a chair getting a cut took advantage of pulling his gun under the cover of the smock.
When one bad guy said, "Why you stalling? Empty your pockets," he then fired a shot into the floor of the barber shop. That's when the customer in the chair opened fire and emptied his automatic clip containing multiple rounds.
Three children were also standing behind the barber chair. That same customer took his unarmed hand and swept the three children into a safe spot out of the way against the wall.
The end result was that none of the customers or children were hurt. One bad guy was killed and the other ran off during the shooting.
Police say the deceased has a long rap sheet. He was currently out on parole for an armed robbery conviction. They are still looking for a suspect that is described as a black male with scruffy hair between the ages of 22 and 30. They say he is six feet tall with a thin build and was wearing a white tee shirt and blue shorts.
Ya he is the one with the pant load full. LOL
1. Why did he have to shoot him so many times
2. Did he have to KILL him?
3. Couldn't he shoot the gun out of his hand?
That is just perfect. I know where that barber shop is too.
He was carrying an “assault pistol” didn’t you know? Must have been one of those full-auto Glock 18s like this one!
Probably blue-and-brown shorts by the time he got out of there.
Yeah, it was one of those high-power AK-47 assault Glock automatics that can pass through a metal detector unnoticed. I'm sure it was purchased through a "gun show loophole", too.

Avid Tv watchers, no doubt.
In some alternative utopia it would be nice to hold parole board members responsible for the crimes of those under their watch. If he has a "long rap sheet" it means he's been convicted of many individual crimes. Yet, still he walked the streets. (Plus, notwithstanding his criminal record, 20,000 gun laws didn't keep him from arming himself, so it isn't too likely that 20,001 would do so either.)
Yep, time for you to die, parasite.
I like happy endings especially when they help to clean up the gene pool.
Crook #1: Hey man, we need some MONEY!
Crook #2: Yeah, let’s stick up a place and GIT some!
Crook #1: Where can we get a LOT of it?
Crook #2: ...uhh... hey! I know! Let’s go rob da BARBER SHOP over there!
WHY a barber shop? I’m sure they’re just LOADED with BIG money after giving those $12. haircuts all day...
correction,” blue soiled shorts”.
Ok, that was funny, I don’t care who you are.
God bless the hero who saved lives and the day with RKBA.
He was just starting to turn his life around....
He would never hurt anyone...
They didn’t have to kill him....
I was thinking Clint Eastwood in “High Plains Drifter” when he takes out three bad guys from the barber’s chair with his covered pistol.
That's been my gripe for years. These people work in the shadows (are never named) and make one mistake after another and never answer for it.
Another “clip” tread.
