said WJBK-TVadding that the armed suspect demanded whatever the driver had with him.

Detroit police
said Fox News Digital They responded to an armed robbery and found a person shot dead. Investigators added to the cable network that the wounded person was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Fox News, citing Detroit police, said the Wayne County Attorney would review the findings of the investigation, but there was no indication the tow truck driver would be charged because the situation appeared to be a case of self-defense.

“I heard several shots”

“I heard several shots, about six to eight,” said a neighbor who declined to give his name
said WXYZ TV.

Police are not confirming the suspect’s identity, but sources told WXYZ he has ties to the area – and the neighbor didn’t want a clash with relatives while they mourn.

“You have to get these crooks off the streets one way or another,” the neighbor added to WXYZ.

A tow truck owner in the area added to WXYZ that some insurance companies don’t cover the liability associated with armed tow truck drivers – leading to some outfits banning drivers from carrying guns.

But a strong advocate of self-defense, Baldwin added to WXYZ that he pays for the insurance that is available, encourages his drivers to get a CPL if they wish, and trains them.

“We’re going to go to the shooting range and practice,” Baldwin told WXYZ. “It’s all about safety and going home at the end of the shift.”
