Robbers hitting Detroit homeowners this week have found themselves looking at the business end of guns instead of the other way around. WXYZ.com reports that two attempted robberies happened early Saturday morning with the results - homeowners two, robbers zero.

The first robbery attempt happened approximately 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning on Detroit’s west side. A woman pulling into her garage was confronted by a man with a gun. The women caused a distraction by dropping her keys on the ground and pulled out her gun and shot the intruder. The alleged robber was killed.

The second robbery attempt was in southwest Detroit about 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Two men broke into a house armed with a tire iron and attempted to assault the homeowner. The attempted robbery was stopped when the homeowner pulled out his gun. Both men were shot. A 21-year-old man was killed while the other man fled.

Both shootings occurred one week after a woman fired an assault rifle at three teenagers that broke into her home. The three suspects, two 14-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy were apprehended by the police.

An increase in concealed weapon permits should make thieves take note that Detroiters are arming themselves to protect against home invasion threats.
