Shots Fired During Robbery Attempt


On June 14, 2011 at approximately 11:00am two masked gunmen attempted to rob the Coin Cove in Roseville, Michigan. The owner, Gene Christian, said the suspects came in through the front door waving guns and shouting for everyone to get down on the floor. At the time, six customers were in the store along with Mr. Christians wife.

Mrs. Christian ran to the rear of the store and was followed by one of the suspects. Mr. Christian rushed to help his wife and was able to retrieve a gun that he kept in the shop. One shot was fired by Mr. Christian and several shots were fired by the suspects. The suspects fled the store. No one was hurt. No inventory was taken during the incident.

The suspects were black and one could have possibly been a female. No other information is available at this time.
