Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy
DETROIT (AP) -- A prosecutor says no charges will be brought against a 70-year-old Detroit high school basketball coach who shot and killed one teenager and wounded a second as they attempted to rob him outside a school.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced Thursday that the case "is a textbook example of lawful self-defense." Her office is charging the 15-year-old boy who was wounded with armed robbery. He's being held at a juvenile detention center.
Authorities say Ernest Robinson, an assistant girls' basketball coach at Martin Luther King Jr. High School, was accosted Feb. 1 by two young men while walking two members of the girls' team outside King High. Police say Robinson fired and Michael Scott was killed.
Robinson is a reserve police officer and licensed to carry a concealed pistol.
