Father in custody

The man who shot and killed a gunman that had earlier shot the man's son was taken into custody Friday.

According to authorities, there was an attempted robbery near Honorah and Pitt streets in southwest Detroit on Thursday while one individual was selling a video game to the man's 15-year-old son. Police said the teenage seller was armed and fired, hitting the other boy -- and that's when the victim's father got his gun and fired back.
