A 16-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach when he tried to rob a 61-year-old man of his gun at a Detroit gas station Sunday morning.
Darius Summers said he just recently got a license to carry a concealed weapon.
“I’d never been through this,” Summers said. “Never shot a gun before. All this is new to me.”
Summers said the teen put a gun to his back and demanded Summers hand over his weapon.
“I said, ‘All I want to do is leave,'” Summers told reporters after the incident. “He said, ‘You can’t leave.’ I said, ‘OK. What do you want to do?'”
Surveillance video from the gas station showed Summers draw his weapon and fire a single round, striking the teen in the stomach. The teen then limped out of the store and was apprehended by authorities soon thereafter.
The teen, who was later identified as Xavier Futrell, was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder, carrying a weapon with unlawful intent, and a felony firearms violation.
Summers, who said he didn’t shoot to kill, said he simply went to the gas station that morning because he wanted a cup of coffee.
