DETROIT (WJBK) -- When a local great grandma couldn't find a good Samaritan to fight off a mugger, she went for the next best thing -- her gun. At 11:30 Thursday morning on a bus near the University of Detroit Mercy, a guy in his early twenties attacked Ramona Taylor-Kamate.
"He said, 'Give me my bag auntie.' I said, 'I am not your auntie, boy, and this is not your bag.' So he hit me. So when he hit me, we started fighting," she explained.
Taylor-Kamate said there were more men than women on that packed bus, but not one guy would help her. She traded punches with the punk, then he grabbed her purse and ran out on the sidewalk with grandma dragging along. She said other bus riders yelled he has a gun.
"He reached down like he was going in his boot. They already [said] he had a gun in his boot. So he reached down in his boot. When he reached down, I went in my secret compartment... and got my H&K out and I started shooting at him."
She has a concealed pistol license and said she feared for her life. She fired her 9 millimeter handgun and emptied the gun. She said he ran away with her purse and did not appear to be hit. She had ten rounds in her magazine and one more loaded in the chamber. She fired all eleven shots.
