A 70-year-old high school basketball coach shot and killed one teenager and wounded a second as they attempted to rob him outside the school, Detroit police said.

Ernest Robinson, an assistant girls’ basketball coach at Martin Luther King Jr. High School, was accosted by two males Friday evening while walking two members of the girls’ team outside King High, said Officer Cassandra Lewis, a police spokeswoman.

“They announced a robbery, a struggled ensued and he pulled a weapon and fired,” said Lewis, who added that Robinson is a reserve police officer and licensed to carry a concealed pistol.

That's the only risk in robbing someone in a "gun free" zone - some animals are more equal than others.

I think there were something like 5 separate defensive shootings in Detroit last week.

Another screwy headline that is confusing and makes one think that it might have been the basketball coach who was doing the robbing.

It’s to tell sane people they’re in a very bad neighborhood and to leave as quickly as possible.

The media will find photos of the perps when they were six years old and publish them just to bias the public as they did with Trayvon.

Thanks for taking out the trash, Coach.

Try to get all of it next time, though.

OK?

It won’t happen. Most defensive shootings in Detroit are black on black.

I especially liked this one despite the fact that granny could use some range time.

Happens every day. What difference does it make!? I guess we’re in Never-Let-A-Crisis-Go-To-Waste mode so all “gun crimes” are highlighted in the name of the obama agenda.

And now this 70 year old man will have no peace for the time he has left.

He will be hounded by the family thugs, the press, and lawyers.

I didn’t even notice that. I’ve given up on journalists as competent writers and mostly just try to figure out what facts they are trying to report.

“Scott’s mother has told reporters that her son did not have a gun.

“I lost my son and I want answers,” Priscilla Scott said.”

And so it starts!!

Thank God he was a reserve police officer. Otherwise he would have no right to defend himself or others.

It won’t happen. Most defensive shootings in Detroit are black on black.

You never know...
The New York Times says George Zimmerman is a "white Hispanic", so maybe they can say Eugene Robinson is a "white black".

Bloomberg would rather have the coach and the 2 girls dead.Having taught in the South Bronx I know that one of the greatest untold stories is how the black perpetraitors prey on their own.

Because that is where most violence occurs. Circular logic applies here, but no lie on any given night on any street named MLK there is bad stuff happening.

When out of towners need to score drugs, they always find out where MLK Street is, and head there.

Maybe not. Do you know what they call some doofus that is too untalented to become a rapper? A “promoter”. I’m serious.
