Double shooting at Detroit restaurant Wednesday

DETROIT – Police are looking at security camera video from a wild double shooting on Detroit's west side Wednesday.

It happened at family owned Legends Coney Island at West Davison and Linwood Wednesday morning.

A man on his way to work was waiting for his order at 2:30am, when a young man wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt over his head ran in to rob the customer. 

That robber failed to see the back of the man's jacket marked "SECURITY."

He chose to rob a victim who is an armed security guard.

Still, the robber shot the man in his legs.

Money fell to the floor.

The victim pulled out his gun, firing and hitting the robber.

The alleged robber's aunt tells Local 4 that he was hit three times in his stomach and once in his hand.

Both men are expected to survive their wounds from the shootout.

Three people were behind the counter at the time of the shooting.

They're protected by plexiglass and are thankful they weren't hit.

Bullet holes could be seen in the business's walls.

The family owned Legends is a popular spot for people heading to work in the morning.

The restaurant reopened just hours after the shooting happened.
