INKSTER, Mich. (WJBK) - There is a manhunt underway after a gun slinging couple stormed into a tax preparation business. A security guard was shot and the dangerous duo is on the run.
"Just seeing that footage and knowing that it's two doors down, yeah, I have to get out of here immediately. It's time to go," said Lillie Heard.
She saw the chilling video of the shootout just two doors down from her home on Kean Street in Inkster. The house there has been converted into a tax preparation service. At 2:30 p.m. Thursday, even though a security vehicle was parked in the driveway, Bonnie and Clyde showed up to announce a holdup, but what they didn't know was they were about to get an AR-15 surprise.

The AR is a force multiplier, a concept liberals do not understand.
And the libtards ask, “why does anybody need a large-capacity magazine?” That’s why. Multiple armed assailants. Duh.
It is amazing how the liberal press worked so hard in that story to make it appear the security guard was wrong to defend himself.
I heard the Amish couple in the video were just on their way home from da store.
Are there any image captures or animated gifs that can go viral?
Be whatever as it may, the newscast is SAYING he's a security guard, and whether yea or nay, the scene and story line is pro gun, pro AR25, pro 2nd Ammendment and for THAT we can be grateful.
But he guard only fire two shots and he missed with them.
should be "da sto" :)
HOORAY security guard! Is there drone technology over Inkster/Detroit? These criminals wouldn’t be able to “escape”.
Mr. AR-15 needs some range time. Sprayin’ ‘n prayin’ let them get away.
The tax preparation fig leaf covers the real use of the facility. The place was dealing drugs and the robbery was intent on getting the drugs and the money.
It was Detroit. The presstitutes missed the real story
I may be wrong but the piece the security guard in the tactical vest was carrying was likely not an AR-15. It looked more like an H&K MP5.
Look closely at the still shot near the end - behind the woman’s handgun is a bag of skittles...
Don’t think you are correct with that. Did you watch the video? Did you see the Security SUV in front of the place?
Looks more like Bonnie and Clod,to bad they got away.
The fact that there was a security guard there, armed and in a vest, makes it obvious that they knew there could be trouble about. I wonder if in close quarters like that if a riot shotgun with buckshot might not have been a better choice. It would have been nice to see at least one of the perps left on the doorstep as an example to others.
I have stated to others that if you really wanted to cut down on crime in these areas, short and long-term, give guns and training to everyone without a record (instead of "gun buybacks"). If you know a place is armed, are you really going to try to rob it? Look how these perps scrambled when it got serious. However, in this case the perps walked past a vehicle ADVERTISING there was security onsite. Either they couldn't read, or were too stupid to make note of it...
Yep. When the Libs cry for gun control, go the other direction. It should be a standard response for Repubs.
After looking at that video several times, it looks more like an AK pistol than an AR. No stock, no buffer tube.
The ridiculous notion that "bigger is always better" in a firefight ignores terrain, conditions, visibility, space, etc. Sadly, local and state LEO'd have been using the "can't be outgunned" meme to grab $10,000 BMG's and other toys that they will never need. Even if a perp has a .50 BMG, and is using it, he can still be taken down with one well-placed shot with a service side-arm or any deer rifle. By accepting and perpetuating the ridiculous notion, we simply allow the wanna-be storm-troopers to waste more of our tax money, and make things far more dangerous when things get "hinky".
“I may be wrong but the piece the security guard in the tactical vest was carrying was likely not an AR-15. It looked more like an H&K MP5.”
I was thinking much the same thing, but the clarity of the picture makes it a tad difficult to be sure. But I did NOT think the guard was using an AR-15.
Considering he was shot before he could bring his carbine into play he did all right.
More than likely...now that the media have gotten some schoolin' since Sandy Hook...they see a firearm that is not a pistol and is black and scary...so they call it an AR-15.
They seem to have graduated from the "Assault rifle" meme to a place where they want to seem knowledgeable.
The female holdup partner needs to practice her purse draw. She fumbled it badly.
What’s with the giant “Concealed Weapons Permit” badge on the side of the SUV?
The guy with the rifle was darn quick to gear up. He comes out of the back room chasing the bad guy with a tactical vest on. Or does he wear it all the time? Maybe a good idea in that neighborhood.
It sometimes pays to watch the video with the sound on. Then you would know he was hired security, not the taxpreparer.
Now the story is making sense. When I first heard the story, my question was: "Why does an income tax preparation service need an armed guard? There is no cash involved, since the money goes to the IRS, not the preparer." Your analysis makes sense of the story.
....more like "dalikasto fo som fo-tays"
Agree completely. If he was shooting .223, the round he shot through the wall while likely ended up across the street somewhere. Mossberg 935 with #4 shot would have been much safer and more effective IMHO.
