Customer swipes masked man’s gun, kills him


Romulus police are seeking three suspects after a party store customer wrestled a gun away from a masked man, shooting and killing him.

Police say the robber and two other men were robbing the store at 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the city about 20 miles southwest of Detroit when the customer walked in with a woman.

Romulus Police Sgt. Corey Sadler tells the Detroit Free Press that the customer successfully fought the gunman for control of the weapon and fired two rounds.

No other injuries were reported.

Police are seeking two men who escaped after trying to force a store employee to empty the safe at gunpoint. They also are searching for the driver of a getaway car, a black, four-door 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix with license plate C-C-R-0-0-5-2.
