The men, both 59, were in an alley between Cloverlawn and Northlawn, north of Schoolcraft, about 9 p.m. when the teens, who are 16-and 17-year-old brothers, pulled out a weapon and said they were robbing the men.
One of the men, who has a license to carry a concealed pistol, shot both teens, police said.”

Anthony Neely, a spokesman for Mayor Dave Bing, said the city has not yet determined if it will impose penalties — up to and including termination — against a 59-year-old Public Lighting employee who shot two teens he claimed were armed and attempting to rob him and his co-worker.
“Appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including discharge, will be taken against employees who are found to have engaged in such misconduct,” the order reads.“
