A man is in the hospital after being shot when he allegedly tried to rob a man who had a gun at a gas station on Detroits west side.
According to police, a man stopped at Sunoco Gas Station near Joy and Hubbell roads Friday night. He went into the station and when he was walking back to his car two men attacked him and tried to rob him.
I think its just terrible, its bold, said a woman who asked not to be identified.
During the altercation, the man pulled a gun, which he is licensed to carry, and fired one round at one of the suspected robbers. He struck him in the chest, the other man got away.

That doesn't happen much now.
If you shot him more than once we all wouldn’t have to pay for the surgery.
“I think its just terrible, its bold, said a woman who asked not to be identified. “ Was she speaking about the robbers or the victim who had the “audacity” to defend himself? It is Detroit, after all.
In a lot of these stories you see the black neighbors wanting the crime cleaned up. Then, when the cops do so, damn Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton type people go berserk.
“Those turrible poe-lease shootin them poe criminals daid!”
People got tired of that. Now THEY are shooting the criminals daid.
I know three guys who worked at my plant on Detroit's east side who were shot in attempted hijackings. And about 5 years ago a racquetball buddy's daughter was shot at as she waited for a light at Cadieux and Outer Drive while on her way home from work at about 11:30 p.m.
And I also know at least 8 other guys from my plant who were just plain murdered for whatever reason......
Meanwhile back at ranch....(wait for the end of the ad)
