Customers coming out of Detroit’s Super X Market never expect to end their shopping experience with an attempted robber pointing a gun in their face, just the same attempted robbers never expect their criminal experience to end with a victim pointing a gun in their face. But wouldn’t you know it, October 8th was a strange day for both parties.
The aforementioned Super X Market at Charles and Sparling on Detroit’s east side was the host to an altercation between 2 shoppers who had just left the store and a young man named Sanchez Quinn, who upon seeing the pair poorly chose them as a target.
Quinn walked up to the two while they were still on store property and produced a small handgun. Upon seeing this approaching stranger and the small gun in his hand, one of the two shoppers, who is a card (and pistol) carrying concealed carrier knew that the time may be soon approaching that he was going to have to pull out his own firearm.
Surely enough, Quinn continued to approach the carrier and his cousin he was with. As Quinn got to their location it was very apparent that his move was to rob the two, but that wasn’t going to happen without a fight if our carrier had anything to say about it.
The CCW’er quickly tried to grab Quinn’s arm and wrestle it away from his gun while the carrier pulled out his own. Unfortunately, he was unable to do both and Quinn’s arm and firearm were able to get free. What followed next was a major shootout with several rounds flying everywhere. Some of the shots hit the CCW’er’s cousin when he was caught in the crossfire.
But just as the bullets ripped through the carrier’s cousin, more of them hit Quinn who was subdued following the altercation.
Now with two men bleeding on the ground, the next thing to do was call the authorities who picked up Sanchez Quinn and the shooter’s cousin and took them to Henry Ford Hospital where they are expected to make a recovery from their wounds. The only difference is where they will head afterward, with the cousin going home and Sanchez Quinn heading to jail.
When asked about the incident our concealed carrier in this story said to Fox 2 News in Detroit…
“It makes me mad because you have people out here that work every day. They are innocent; you want to take from them. These guys, I definitely feel don’t need to be back out on the street because someone else might get hurt and it might happen in a different way.”
And thankfully, due to his concealed firearm, the carrier in our story was able to tell his after it happened.
