DETROIT -- A 16-year-old was killed Friday during a gun battle inside a Detroit McDonald's, Local 4 has learned.
Sources said the teen tried robbing the fast food restaurant, which is on Six Mile Road near Livernois Avenue, by jumping over the counter but was confronted by a retired police officer who was also inside.
Detroit Police Lt. Dwane Blackman said the teen and retired officer were both armed and exchanged more than a dozen shots. The teen was killed.
No one else inside was hurt.
Dead criminal? Check.
No injured innocents? Check.
Sounds like a hero to me.
