Police sources tell 7 Action News that a women’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School shot two men who attacked him as he was walking two basketball players to their cars in the school parking lot.

Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.

    This warmed my heart. The world is now one thug safer. Any chance the second thug will assume room temperature, too?

    It’s sad that any street or landmark named after MLK is usually a haven for crime.

    Another great P.R. story for Detroilet.
    The anchorette in the studio said “Just a tragedy all the way around…”
    Actually, not really. The dead perp had been expelled from the school and wasn’t even supposed to be on the school grounds.
    Therefore, he’s trespassing, and attempts to pull an armed robbery and gets what he asked for.
    Where’s the tragedy?

    Oh…wait…was he another one who could have been Obama’s son?
