A 91-year-old Detroit man became alarmed when he was approached by a younger male in his 20s, who was acting erratically. The young male pointed an unknown object at him, outside of Rite Aid, and was seemingly trying to rob the senior. It was at this point when the 91-year-old warned the younger male that he had a concealed carry license. However, when that did not ward off the attack, he pulled the trigger.
