According to police, the 70 year old basketball coach was walking the girls to their car when he was approached by the attackers. When one of the attackers grabbed the coach by his necklace, he pulled out his gun and shot them both.

One of the alleged attackers was found dead on the street, while another was taken to the hospital. Both of the attackers had attended the high school, and one had been expelled from the school.

Police say that the coach had a concealed weapons permit and is cooperating with police.


The Detroit Public Schools issued this statement to 7 Action News:

At approximately 7:30pm DPS Police responded to a call of attempted robbery at Martin Luther King Jr. High School. DPS Police are cooperating with DPD which is handling the lead investigation.
We are very relieved that all students and DPS personnel and representatives involved are safe and were unharmed. Preliminary reports are that shots were fired during an attempted robbery of a member of the coaching team of the school’s girls basketball program by two assailants outside the school. There was one fatality and one injured suspect in serious condition.

The school has many security features which were in place at the time of the incident as well as a full security plan as do all DPS schools. These will be reviewed as the regularly are after any incidents.  There will be counselors available at the school Monday morning for students and faculty members. 
The Detroit police have expressed several times that they are understaffed and unable to meet the needs of the city.

    Somehow Black parents have got to be educated and demand the best from their Public Schools. Above all, not to leave the education of their children to anyone. Stop the Coporate take over of our neighborhood schools.

    If it was so good, there would be charter schools in white communities. There are not any!!!
