Michigan Self-Defense: Detroit woman getting ready for church shoots, kills man during home invasion :: 12/03/2018

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit police are investigating a home invasion turned fatal shooting on Mark Twain Street Sunday morning.

According to officers, around 10:30 a.m., a mother and daughter were getting ready to leave their home for church when an unknown man approached and tried grabbing one of them.

The mother and daughter then went back inside their home, but the suspect "forced his way inside," according to police.

The 55-year-old mother then retrieved a gun and fired two shots at the suspect, hitting him at least once in the chest. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene. 

Police say the shooting was in self-defense and no arrests will be made. 

7 Action News spoke to retired MSP gun expert, David Balash.  He says Detroit police made the right decision by not arresting the woman.

In Michigan, you don't need to have a gun permit or license to carry in order to keep a gun in your home and use it for protection if you feel threatened.  

"If it's an unknown person and they follow you inside, I suspect they would be legitimately in fear for their well being and safety," said Balash.  "They have every right to defend themselves."

The case will be reviewed by the Wayne County prosecutor.
