Police arrested two men suspected of shoplifting from a Home Depot in Auburn Hills from a Tuesday incident where a woman fired shots at them, police announced Friday.
The Flint men, ages 52 and 46, allegedly drove away in a black Kia as the 46-year-old Clarkston woman pulled her concealed pistol and opened fire in the parking lot, flattening a tire as they got away, Auburn Hills Police Department reports.The 52-year-old was arrested this morning, and the 46-year-old was arrested Thursday evening, both in Flint. A Westchester County criminal defense lawyer is reviewing the details of this case.
The woman has not been arrested, and has been cooperative, but she could face charges once the investigation is complete, police said.
Officers responded to the business at about 2 p.m. Tuesday on a report of shots fired. They found that the woman, a concealed-pistol license holder, was trying to stop a man as he pushed a cart full of unpaid merchandise out of the store, according to police. A Westchester County burglary lawyer is following this story closely.
Both men could face charges of felony retail fraud because the items stolen were worth more than $1,000, police said. First-degree retail fraud is punishable by up to five years in prison and fines of up to $10,000 or three times the value of the stolen property.
The case against the men will be presented to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office for possible charges, police said.
