Detroit's criminals don't seem to have gotten the message yet but their ranks are being thinned on a regular basis.
In the early hours of Thursday (April 10th, 2014), two thugs broke into a Detroit home. The family was downstairs, in the basement, playing video games. They heard the commotion of the invaders and armed themselves.
Shots were fired by the homeowner and the thugs fired back as they fled the scene. Two of the suspects left on foot while the third, a driver, was shot inside the getaway vehicle just outside the home.
As the driver fled the scene he ran over a median and crashed into a nearby home. When authorities arrived the driver was pronounced dead on the scene.
