    Police: Manager Shot At Local Car Dealership

    DETROIT -- A manager at a local car dealership was shot by an employee on Thursday morning, police said.

    The shooting took place at about 9:30 a.m. at Jefferson Chevrolet, just east of the Interstate 375 exit in Detroit.

    Police said the manager and the employee were arguing when at some point the employee pulled out a gun and fired a shot.
    The manager suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach, police said.

    The employee called 911 and waited for emergency crews and police to arrive.

    The manager was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital, where he remains in temporary serious condition.

    Police took the employee into custody without incident. There was no word on what charges he may face.

    Detectives were still investigating what led to the shooting. Family members of the victim told Local 4 that the employee accused of firing the shot was among a group of workers that the manager reprimanded on Wednesday for being late to work.

    Police said the suspected gunman has a concealed weapons permit and his weapon is registered.


    I wonder what happened with the REST of the story . . . :uhoh:

    MN doesn't need this right now . . .

    yeah? So what else is new. This stuff happens all the time. Power hungry idiot thinks he's god then shoots somebody for no reason and then ruins it for the law abiding citizens. I was born in detroit. Moved when I was 13. My dad finally provided the family with a better life in the suburbs. Why did we move? One day 3:00am at night, a 100 yards behind my house a drug deal went wrong and then one of them went all rambo with his full size Israeli Uzi 9mm. 2 of the rounds hit my house and woke me up. I just ignored it(because I didnt know it was BULLETS...) and went back to sleep. I wake up a half hour later and I hear my dad talking to police down stairs. I go down to inspect, then the police leave. i ask dad "what happened" he says "nothing, go back to sleep". I go to take a piss in the bathroom and then I look in the mirror while washing my face. What do i see in the corner of the mirror behind me? A freakin' 1.5 inch hole that the round exited out of. I look on the other wall and there is another hole, where the bullet entered. The 2nd round entered a window, went through a door, a wall, and got stuck in a dictionary.

    So tell me, what is new in Detroit?

    According to some reports one individual was choking another. I imagine its kinda hard to draw with both hands at someones throat. You do the math.
    Keepin' an eye on this one...

    Detroit Car Salesman Shoots Coworker
    By Michael Rosenfield
    Web produced by Seth Myers
    April 28, 2005

    An argument between two car salesmen turned violent Thursday. One man was shot in the stomach, right on the showroom floor of Detroit's Jefferson Chevrolet.

    Police say the salesmen began with a verbal altercation around 8:30 a.m. Their argument quickly escalated. One man began choking the other before a gun was fired.
    "It wasn't a spontaneous incident," said Pastor David Roberts. His brother, 37-year-old Andrew Roberts, was the shooting victim. Andrew Roberts had been arguing with a coworker for several weeks.

    The wounded salesman was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital where he underwent surgery Thursday for his gunshot wound in the stomach.

    "I think, for the last two months, they had been disputing over sales, car sales," said David Roberts. The pair had apparently quarreled over who would handle customers as they arrived at the dealership.

    The shooting took place in front of many witnesses, including customers looking at new cars. When it was over, the suspect himself called 911 and waited for police officers to arrive.

    Detroit police took the suspect into custody peacefully. He was awaiting charges Thursday afternoon.

    "Andrew is a go-getter and maybe that's what allowed these events to occur," the shooting victim's brother speculated.

    Well, heck. Slice 'em in half. If it was a good enough approach in Solomon's time, it's good enough in ours, darn it!

    Sounds to me like the guy who got shot was choking the victim and the victim fired in self-defense. He even called 911 and stayed until the police arrived. This was probably a clean self-defense shooting.

    Although this may turn out to be a justified shoot, let's face it, folks -- there are a lot of people out there with CCWs that have no business having a gun. Incidents of unjustified shootings are inevitable. We just need to be prepared to emphasize how rare they are when compared to the number of unjustified shoots by those who carry guns illegally.

    Interesting choice of words, considering he'll either go critical or recover to stable condition from there. Like saying "the space shuttle was in temporary flight within the earth's atmosphere." Duh, considering it would either fall out of the sky or make it to orbit... :rolleyes: Morons.

    Even though there is truth in your remark about those who shouldn't be allowed, just who gets to make that decision? 2nd Ammend' doesn't say who, why or how many, just that we can. If some of the good guys can't, because they don't qualify, who is responsible for their protection from the bad guys who will in spite of. Are you suggesting that people have passed through your training, that some how, don't qualify or is that just your general knowledge? Actually I know of what you refer, but who should make or be qualfied to make that sort of decision, that allows or disallows? Lib's would love the decision process, wouldn't they?

    Your assumptions just aren't supported by the facts. Virginia has around 140,000 CCW permit holders, with around 10 years of permits, giving 1,400,000 years of experience with shall issue concealed carry. In that time, AFAIK, there has been exactly one serious firearms related crime committed by a permit holder. Bad permit holders are literally one in a million.

    ^ Agreed. In the 10 years NC has had the CCW permits issued, none have been revoked due to violent crime.

    It will be interesting to see if the shooter did anything out of the ordinary to provoke the attack. I do not have a CCW, but IIRC from talking to MI CCW holders, if you create/escalate the situtation, it is no longer viewed completely as self defense.

    Let's watch this one. I can't wait to see how the media spins it. Lemme see here, a one handed choke hold. Must be some sort of ninja kungfooie unique to New Faluja.

    Actually, (just to nitpick), bad permit holders are literally 1 in 140,000. It's incidents by permit holders that are less than one in a million.

    OK, uber nitpicking now :D ... but to be perfectly correct, I guess I should have said something like "Incidents involving serious firearms related crimes by CCW permit holders in VA occur at the rate of 1 per every 1,400,000 man years of permit issuance"

    So these incidents are rare enough to declare CCW permit holders to be amongst the most law-abiding groups.

    Perhaps they (and we) do need something like this right now. There were many witnesses. If it turns out that it was a proper defensive use of a weapon, then it will support our cause.

    There was a incident about a year ago just outside Austin,TX in a affluent part of the county by the lake. A man and his young boy where going into a HEB store when approach by a man under the influence(of something).The man follow the Man and son and made some sexual comments about the boy. They shopped then came out of store the man was waiting and made more comments then rushed at father and son, father shoot man in stomach with many witnesses. The Sheriff Office let the father go, but the DA(who hates guns) wants to prosecute.

    This isn't really about whether the guy "should" or "shouldn't" have a CCW. The thing is to not let anyone push forward the idea that if he didn't have a CCW he wouldn't have had a gun and this wouldn't have happened. People about to commit capital crimes do not worry about an illegal firearm charge.

    Let's see him get a conviction on that one. Esp in TX where "he needed killing" is a valid defense. And this joker sure sounds like he needed it.

    Well, there's "Texas" and then there's Austin. There's a reason you see a lot of "Keep Austin Weird" bumber stickers. (Last elections there was one blue county in a sea of red...Travis Co. That DA seems to have an agenda/reputation--we'll see how it goes.)
