Robbers With AK-47s Hit Two Detroit Gas Stations

DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are investigating whether a group of AK-47 wielding robbers who hit two gas stations Wednesday morning are responsible for several similar crimes that have recently occurred across the city.

Sam Adbullah was manning the till at the BP gas station on 7 Mile near I-75 around 4 a.m. when he looked up at the security camera.

“I had the camera turned on in the back. Usually I don’t, but tonight for some reason I had it on the back,” Adbullah told WWJ’s Ron Dewey.

Adbullah said he saw a vehicle drive up and four men exit the car with assault rifles drawn.

“I saw the car and then it disappeared, and then it popped back up on the camera in the back on the building. I saw them come out with the guns and everything. So, I said ‘Oh, s***!’ and I just closed the door, went over there, picked up the phone and called the police,” he said.

Adbullah said he locked the door and got down behind the bullet proof glass. When the robbers couldn’t get in, they left.

“It was frightening but you know, you just take control, your mind takes control,” he said.

Adbullah said unfortunately, dealing with robberies comes with the territory of owning a gas station in Detroit.

Police confirmed to WWJ that the bodies were found at a house on Tacoma, near East State Fair and Hayes.

Sgt. Eren Stephens said the victims are one woman and three men, all in their 20s.

The woman who discovered the bodies said there was an apparent drug raid at the house earlier in the day, but police wouldn’t comment on that.

No suspects are in custody.

    detroit, chicago, DC all major gun control cities run by democrats.

    that fact alone makes one wonder why there are any murders at all in those cities let alone murder committed by handguns.

    guns are illegal in those cities, so how do people get killed with guns there?

    This is nothing new in Detroit. I talked to a guy who left Detroit about 6 years ago. His sister worked at a liquor store and 2 guys held up some people in the parking lot weilding ak-47s. This was about 4 years ago.
    This is what Socialism has done to Detroit.

    Just waiting for the next “incident” in which “AK-47 assault weapons” are used. The next day, The Usual Suspects are going to introduce legislation in U.S. Congress to ban them. Again.

    Re: the second story, looks like someone forgot to pay the crack bill.
