Michigan Security Guard Uses AR-15 To Fend off Attack
The Blaze ^ | Madeleine Morgenstern

HE'S ABOUT TO GET AN AR-15 SURPRISE...

Dramatic surveillance footage out of the Detroit area shows the heart-stopping moment when a gun-wielding couple stormed into a tax business and started shooting — and a security guard pulled out an AR-15 and drove them away.

The security guard suffered a non-life-threatening wound to the leg and the suspects got away, but otherwise no one was seriously injured in the shootout.

It happened Thursday at a converted home business in Inkster, Mich. A man and woman armed with handguns showed up at the door and announced a holdup, despite the security vehicle parked outside, WJBK-TV reported. The receptionist had gone up to greet them, with the business owner sitting in a chair in the corner. Surveillance footage shows the male suspect pointing a gun at the receptionist’s head, and the security guard scrambling in the back office for the rifle.

“The security guard that was inside returned fire, two shots at the suspect. Did not hit him. The suspects then fled the location,” Inkster, Mich. police Lt. Jeffrey Smith told WJBK. “There was quite a few people inside the location. Very lucky that nobody was seriously injured. The security guard did suffer a wound to the upper leg area, but he’s going to be okay.”

Assault weapons aren’t any good for self defense! A politician I know said so!

Next time make sure to specify that you want your refund in cash and not small caliber rounds.

This video must be a fraud - everyone knows that AR-15’s can’t be used for anything other than mass shootings.

Security guard should not have fired through the wall. That bullet went right over an innocent person in the other room.

Shooter could not verify background.

The part that surprises me here is that the security guard was allowed to carry an AR-15 or any other long gun. When I worked in the industry, handguns were pretty much the only firearm allowed at most companies with armed guards (not including armored car and other specialized security firms, which were a bit of a different business altogether)

Either way, could to see the thugs were thwarted. It would have been better had they’d gotten tagged, but at least the security guard was able to protect his charges.

Inkster. Inkster's nickname is Little Saigon. There also is little to no Vietnamese there. Lot's of shootings however.

SW Inkster is worse than Detroit.

The guard needs more range time.

Personally, I think a 12 gage shotgun would have been much more fun.

If it were up to Obama and his filthy treasonist democrats, those innocent citizens would likely be dead.

Took the words out of my mouth. Massive adrenaline dump may have messed up his aim.

Colorado commies have voted that we can’t have magazines over 15 rounds. The malignancy in D.C. is metastasizing and spreading across the country.

“everyone knows that AR-15’s can’t be used for anything other than mass shootings.”

So, had there been 20 burglars, they would all be dead?
