(WXYZ) - Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women's basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.

Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.

The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police.

He should have called 911 instead.

Say what you want about Detroit but at least you can legally arm yourself there.

Scissors, Coach. You’re supposed to use scissors.

Yep. I’d rather walk in a Detroit blackout than some areas of Chicago in full daylight.

Hard to believe that those two yoots violated a Gun Free Zone.

She could use some range time but I doubt anyone will be trying to take her purse again.

God knows what would have happened to the girls if the guy had cowered instead.

Thank you, Coach.

You and the two girls you protected are three statistics that will never appear in some crime tabulations. Especially liberal ones.

Old folks are taking a hell of a toll on the thug population in Detroit.

I don't know what to think of this but its interesting in light of the Detroit "murder" rate.

Self-Defense Killings in Detroit are 2,200 Percent Above the National Average

Nice shooting coach!

From the web site: One of the attackers was found dead in the median on Lafayette Boulevard, and the other was taken to a local hospital, according to police sources. We’ve learned that both of the men had attended the high school, and one had been recently expelled.

“We want our police to stop the crime. We don’t want the citizens to stop the crime. We don’t want vigilantes to do so.”

That professional Donut Muncher really does want only uniformed, PUBLIC EMPLOYEES to stop crimes.

Salaries and Bennies are all Mr. Donut Muncher cares about.

This kind of thing is why I question the murder rate in Detroit. There is a lot of incentive from all levels of law enforcement to manipulate the numbers. At the local level they need a high murder rate to scream for more money and at the federal level they want a high murder rate to take guns away.

I hear Flint is no better. I was born at St. Joes in Flint. Its been torn down a long time ago along with Buick. It was such a nice town but that was in the 50’s & early 60’s. Been down hill since. Glad I moved out in the 70’s.

Sounds like a whole lotta self-defendin' goin' on there.

After a while being a victim just isn't as fun as the liberals make it out to be.

Meanwhile in my little town some 70 miles to the west, we haven’t had a murder in some 30 odd years.

Now, THAT is the correct way to protect school children: armed teachers.

Being that old, if he hadn’t had that gun, they would have overpowered him. Good for him.

In Chicago the police would have probably arrested the coach.
