Detroit Mugger Seriously Injured After Trying to Attack Concealed Carrier
Four muggers in Detroit were surprised when the man they assaulted pulled out a gun and shot at them, leaving one robber in serious condition.
Police say the suspects mugged an off-duty security guard who was on his way home, near a gas station on the city's west side. They hit him in the head with a baton when he didn't hand over his things quickly enough.
That's when the man, who's licensed to carry a concealed weapon, shot at his attackers.

One of the suspects, a 21-year-old, was struck and remains in serious condition at a nearby hospital while under arrest. The other three criminals, who all looked to be in their 20s, took off.

Last summer, the Detroit police chief told Fox News that legal gun ownership was increasing in the city after he called on law-abiding citizens to consider buying a firearm and taking the necessary safety courses.
He said that crime numbers had dropped and he believed the spike in legal gun ownership was a contributing factor.
