A recent robbery attempt in a Detroit gas station backfired when a teenager picked the wrong man to mess with.
Darius Summers is a mild-mannered musician who just turned 61. He also recently received his license to carry a concealed weapon.
“I’d never been through this,” Summers said. “Never shot a gun before. All this is new to me.”
Last Sunday, Summers was at a gas station near his home on Detroit’s west side.
“I just wanted some coffee, so I walked down here,” Summers said.
A 16-year-old boy armed with a gun saw that Summers was also armed, and the teen tried to take his weapon. He stuck his gun in Summers’ back, thinking he was an older, easier target. Boy was he wrong.
