Skip to comments.Detroit Gunman Points Gun at Driver, Pulls the Trigger Twice
Posted on 04/20/2014 10:55:27 AM PDT by lowbridge
Two brothers were working to restore a Detroit home this week when their lives were suddenly put into extreme danger.
The two men and their friend had just pulled up the homes driveway in their van. Thats when one of the brothers told WBJK-TV a young black male, about 30s walked up to the drivers window.
[He] had a little grin on his face, little smirk on his face. And he pulled a gun, pointed it right in my face. He pulled the trigger, the other brother, who was not identified, told the local Fox affiliate.
The trigger was pulled twice.
And it misfired, one of the brothers said.
If it wouldnt have misfired, I wouldnt be here talking to you today, the brother the shooter aimed to shoot told WJBK.
The driver of the vehicle then attempted to maneuver the vehicle and shake the gunman loose, but the suspect smashed the passenger and back windows and started gaining entry into the van.
One of the brothers then attacked him, while the other retrieved a bat and started striking the gunman. They ordered him to stay on the ground, but a getaway vehicle arrived and at least one person helped the suspect into the car.
However, he didnt get far. The suspect left his wallet at the scene and Detroit police were able to use his information to identify and apprehend him.
According to WBJK, the gunman is now behind bars and facing multiple charges. Authorities are still searching for the driver and any other individuals who may have aided his attempted escape.

Currently, murder is illegal, but the social breakdown invites a lot of violence and murder -- this chases away law-abiding citizens who might want to rebuild houses. The law is not helping; the law is a hindrance.
If murder were not illegal, I think the people being chased away would be the people who are not rebuilding the city, but merely preying on others.
Glad the Gunman is in jail, probably had a dirty gun or old ammo.
I’m sure both will be carrying everywhere they go from now on.
We have the very helpful NOT UNSAFE Hangun Roster to help insure that even criminals are more likely to be carrying reliable firearms.
Brother #2 needs more time at the ball park.
Swing away, Merril!
All aggressive animals who attack people should be eliminated instantly.
“I don’t think Detroit can be rebuilt until they pass a law that says murder is not illegal.”
What you say sounds cynical, except that it’s closer to the TRUTH than the media will tell us. If those children, Obama’s children, even make it to trial in Detroit (like most loser cities) they will either be found not guilty, or will have a very light sentence - since incarceration is considered equivalent to slavery - in their minds. This case needs to be tried either at the state or federal level, to have a chance of a reasonable outcome.
They used a baseball bat on this individual and he is still alive and not crippled? You’re not doing it right.
I guess bangers are not real good at gun cleaning and maintenence.

Was this one of those cheap houses that you end up paying for with your life?
If Detroit prosecutor Kym Worthy gets ahold of this case this idiot will be behind bars for a while. Kym prosecuted Kwame Kilpatrick et. al. Kym don’t care what color you are she’ll put you behind bars. BTW Kym is black.
Sounds like a gang initiation...
Here’s why racial incidents have incresed and gotten out of hand
If racial unrest follows Zimmerman jury decision, blame it on Activist Obama
This is reference to an editorial run in Canada Free Press. The Canadians got it right.! Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts Ive been listening to cant seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state .
Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage.. Taking some poor guy of mixed race including black doing his job and painting a target on his back to fullfill a socialist agenda.
The truth and purpose behind the Zimmerman persecution .. The regime and the media set the premise for the trial narrative and their presentations ignoring the setting where the incident took place..
An area having a Neighborhood Watch and the person working security just doing his job. Why was this episode politicized ?...The first was to gin up the base for purposes explained here ..
When you enter a “gated community” and start wandering around no matter if you are white, blue, red, green, or black. You can be asked your purpose for being there. You are on private property. And yes those on patrol can and do leave their vehicle and follow on foot if they lose sight of the person theyre observing..Thats the Watch Captains who is really a security guards job.http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3054721/posts
The person of mixed race including black working security was attacked on private rights of way while on foot who discontinued an observation and was returing to his vehicle after being suggested by the police to do so.
Legally he could have approached Saint Trayvon but didnt..The hooded tall figure was allowed to continue on his way.unimpeded. But didnt. That figure turned out to be a Martin Trayvon who doubled back and attacked the neighborhood watch worker as he was returing to his vehicle. Knocked him to the ground and began beating him severly. Saint Trayvon, the attacker, was subsequently killed in a struggle over the Neighborhood Watchmans legal pistol.
Both were dark skined and could pass as cousins. That gated community was an integrated townhouse development of modest income home owners.
The facts of this case are still being shamefully being concealed by the media to the extent they are advancing and are complicit in permitting a putrid injstice of the worst order,organized and instituted by our governent, to be committed .
While denied. It began as a miscalculation when a surname of a Jewish origin shot up and lighted the heavens like a star shell in the darkest of nights. It would have been difused if the media used pictures of both side by side because they look like cousins. And the area where this occured of paycheck to paycheck struggling homeowners of all races trying to protect themselves had been reported and not some ritzy all white enclave.they portrayed..
Worse yet the media is still pilling it on with ABC editing a a black jury members (remember when they were all white)t remarks to make it sound like she accused Zimmerman of murder .
The result has resulted with gangs of black youths murdering happless whites and hispanics who happen into areas usually where a black population is the majority. Those media outlets who by their delberate misuse of the instrument of the 1st amendment are just as complicit in those deaths as the regime is.
Particularly the black media which had the duty but not the obligation to verify and report factually. But instead quoted the reports from various mainlining socialist media sources: Some examples here all of which serve the first purpose of selecting Zimmerman as the target. What is the result ?
Black youths believing they would get top level peer approval began attacking happless white and hispanics which may have wandered into their area which resulted in murders or serious injury and some cases stalked their white victims.
In reality their victims are martyrs to the cause of American socialism.,and the political opposition says nothing..

What could the purpose be ?
What better way to cover up Bengahzi, Fast and furious, IRS, Wind and Solar panel gate, NSA spying on US, Over-riding the constittution? Dont look into who accompaines Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the presidents hand isnt that pay back at US taxpayer expence?. Isnt that an impeachable offense ??
Now if somebody even suggests impeachment.Most opponents will cite the reaction of the black community generated by this division created by none other than a president of the United States.
There’s nothing like a nice piece of hickory.
The joke's on the two decent brothers - the perp will be back on the street in weeks - if he's not already out.
Bloomberg would be happy - the honest people we're armed - and the gang bangers were armed. Next time the honest men should be armed.
Not one of the FR’s posting previous to my post #17 refered or connected the episode and hundreds like it to an offical policy generated by this regime which my post does.
We’re letting this regime get away with murder.
The joke's on the two decent brothers - the perp will be back on the street in weeks - if he's not already out.
Bloomberg would be happy - the honest people weren't armed- and the gang bangers were armed. Next time the honest men should be armed with more than a baseball bat.
I’m thinking the guy stuck a magazine in the gun and didn’t know he had to jack a round into the chamber. “I don’t know why it didn’t fire, I put the bullets in it!”
“Kym prosecuted Kwame Kilpatrick et. al. Kym dont care what color you are shell put you behind bars. BTW Kym is black.”
Outstanding!! I was generalizing in my statement. In New Orleans, the state was simply forced to take over prosecutions - it got that bad. In Phili, a judge did come out and state that jail and slavery were no different.
It is nasty out there, but Kym is a major hero, given who she is and where she works.
If you ask me, the Lord spared the two young men’s lives. I hope they acknowledge that.
That’s right. Teach him that you don’t bring a stupid grin and a broken gun to batting practice. lol
Second, Don't offer goods and services such as small groceries stores. It will be seen as reflecting poorly on the natives, since they can't seem to start anything viable and profitable. Plus you are “taking money out of the community” that would otherwise be going to a local drug dealer or pimp.
STAY OUT OF DETROIT!
Was the gun loaded?
The report doesn’t mention it.
Rule of gun safety: ALL guns are loaded.
Broken firing pin from dry-firing? I know certain small semiautos (.25s are notorious) have that problem.
Don’t ask me how I know that, but it took several weeks before my mother found her firing pin was mysteriously broken when she tried target shooting hers, lo, these many decades ago.
Boy, was she P.O.ed, but safety in numbers: I have 3 older brothers. ;-)
Sounds like another one of Barack Obama’s loser sons.
Too lazy to work his own way through life at a real job and too incompetent to do his own thieving and mugging.
Just like daddy Barack.
That's what everyone thinks about their demon-state. Just wait a little while longer. Connecticut is undergoing the transformation now.
Will the Mercer Brothers please pick up the red courtesy phone ... Mercer Brothers ...
Detroit is trying to attract new residents, as nonprofit groups begin offering incentives to encourage more people to buy a home in Motor City.
Good Luck With That.
That’s what I’m thinking. Definitely a swing for the fence situation with the ball already Teed up.
