Good for him! He's 70 years old. Was escorting 2 students to their cars. Goes to show the anti's that an armed teacher/coach can stop armed bad guys.



At least one of the attackers was a student at the school and had recently been expelled.

Detroit high school coach shoots suspected attackers outside school

DETROIT – A young man is dead and another is seriously injured after a shooting during an attempted robbery of a basketball coach near a Detroit high school.

MyFoxDetroit.com reports that a 70-year-old coach for the girl's basketball team at Martin Luther King Junior High School was walking two students to their cars at the school when the shooting occurred.

When one of the suspected robbers reportedly pulled a gun, the coach allegedly fired back, fatally shooting 16-year-old Michael Scott and injuring the other person, according to MyFoxDetroit.com.

Priscilla Scott, Michael's mother, told MyFoxDetroit.com that her son didn't own a gun.

The coach is reportedly a police reserve officer and has a permit to carry a gun.

Probably one of those straw purchases and gun show loopholes at the most recent gun show!


Dang that gunshow loophole!

..........Of course he didn't own a gun,he was too young ! I'd bet there's a few other things around the house he didn't ''own'' either.......

Uhm, no! He might have had a troubled past, but I'm sure he was a good boy who was turning his life around.



On a serious note, happy that this story made the national media. I hope it gets some attention on the tv too. However, since it happened on a weekend it might get past over.

Goes to show the anti's that an armed teacher/coach can stop armed bad guys. While I agree with that statement, the coach isn't a teacher at the school. It's pretty common for schools to look outside of their regular staff for coaches/sponsors for extra-curricular activities. I don't suppose it matters at all, other than essentially the attacker was shot by an off duty police officer.

Goes to show Wayne LaPierre is right. The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

You don't know just how right you are! They interviewed the perp's mother, and those were almost her exact words.
