Robber’s mom alerts news about injustice after son pays price for pulling gun on concealed carry holder

A would-be robber in Detroit got more than he bargained for when he picked the wrong victim.

Sanchez Quinn, 29, pointed his gun at his intended victim, but the unnamed man pushed Quinn’s hand out-of-the-way, pulled out his own gun, and fired back striking the assailant multiple times on Sunday, Fox 2 Detroit reported.

The victim has a concealed pistol license and, while the shooting remains under investigation, police said it appears to be a case of self-defense, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

And a quick look at the stunning video of the incident helps that case.

“I turned and looked and saw the other gentleman had a gun pointed at my face,” the victim told Fox 2 Detroit. “I was able to knock his hand down and the gunfire rang out.”

The concealed carry holder’s cousin was shot four times in the crossfire but is expected to recover.

The video came to the attention of Fox 2 Detroit when Quinn’s mother, Cynthia Quinn, called the network for help because she didn’t know why guards would not allow her to see her son in the hospital.

“When I went to my son’s room I was stopped by two police officers (who) told me to get out of my son’s room,” she told the network. “‘Why you here? You can’t be here.'”

“All I want to do is see my son to see if he’s alright,” she said.

Police told the victim that if he was not armed he and his cousin might not be alive to tell the tale.

“It makes me mad because you have people out here that work every day. They are innocent; you want to take from them,” the victim said. “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.”

Quinn and his partner in the attempted robbery were apprehended.
