AND THE ARMED ROBBER WAS DRT!
WXYZ.com: Detroit Police say a would-be robber was shot and killed at a Detroit restaurant Sunday morning. According to police, it happened at Pete’s Grill and Coney Island on Outer Drive and Dequindre.
Police say the man walked into the restaurant, announced a hold-up and pointed a gun at the owner. Then, the cook in the back pulled out a gun and shot the robber several times, according to police.
“Next thing I know, I saw everybody getting down on the ground,” said Robert Felton, of Detroit, who was inside the restaurant during the robbery. “This guy was robbing the place. He had the gun on everybody. He was telling everybody, ‘get to the register, I want the register.'”
The employee shot the man, killing him. “Next thing I know, I hear a bunch of gunshots,” Felton said.
Felton told Local 4’s Nick Monacelli that the robber was telling everyone not to move and was waving the gun back and forth. “It was a good thing, because the guy was threatening everybody,” Felton said. “There had to be at least 20 people in the restaurant. The guy that works here, he’s a hero. He’s really a hero.”
