What started as an argument over taking off a coat ended with the suspect shot dead and one security guard with life-threatening injuries.
This incident happened last Saturday night in a VIP Club called Cash Only, which is in the basement of a high-class restaurant called Prime + Proper in Detroit. The VIP Club has a policy of no cellphone and no coats. When security guards asked a 52-year-old man to remove his jacket, he became hostile.
Two security guards tried to escort the man out, which is when he pulled a folding knife and proceeded to stab one of the security guards multiple times. The other security guard drew his concealed carry gun, ordered the suspect to stop and drop the knife. He didn’t comply, and the security guard shot the suspect, who died on the scene.
The security guard that was stabbed had life-threatening injuries and underwent a five-hour surgery. We can only hope that he makes a full recovery.
Knife attacks can happen quickly and be very violent. Thankfully, there was another security guard there who was armed and able to stop the attack before the suspect was able to kill the other guard.
