stock_327There has been a higher than normal number of defensive gun uses in Detroit, MI over the last 3-4 weeks. We’ve dubbed this resurgence in personal responsibility for one’s safety “The Detroit Revolution”.

It finally seems that law abiding Detroit residents are deciding to take back their city from the criminal element that has taken over the city for far too long.

According to The Detroit News, two men broke into a west Detroit home, and it ended very badly for one of them,

“The homeowner was able to retrieve his weapon, and fired hitting one of the burglars,” Johnson said. “He ran away and collapsed in the driveway. The other burglar was able to escape.”

The homeowner heard glass shatter near the rear of his home and found one intruder, believed to be 17 years old, attempting to enter through a window, Johnson said. The resident fired two shots hitting the victim in his chest. The juvenile intruder died.

His suspected accomplice, a man in his 20s, fled the scene and is still at-large.

As mentioned by MLive, Police Chief Craig has voiced his support for legally armed citizens fighting back against a constantly rising criminal population in Detroit. It will certainly be interesting to see if this trend continues and if it does, if it acts as a successful preventative against further violent crime.

This is the 43rd defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Michigan and the 1,085th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
