  1. Appears the victim was shot and down before he started shooting at Bad Guy who’s intent of stealing his truck. At the end of the Detroit article, have to just ‘love’ the part about possible charges against the victim. And yes to availability of medical pack; however, the victim appears to be in shock focused on calling police, forgetting about his own first aid. Med Pack needs to be at hand with someone who can use it. Victim’s running on adrenaline ,, wife focused on daughter obviously hysterical that the store prevented her from going to her daughter. Hopefully the victim recovers fully and Detroit doesn’t file charges. My home state and Detroit is not a good place to be, even with all the so-called down town renovation. davzway.
