Two teenagers were shot when they tried to rob men working on a public lighting pole on Detroit’s west side Thursday night, according to Detroit police.

The men, both 59, were in an alley between Cloverlawn and Northlawn, north of Schoolcraft, about 9 p.m. when the teens, who are 16-and 17-year-old brothers, pulled out a weapon and said they were robbing the men.

One of the men, who has a license to carry a concealed pistol, shot both teens, police said.

The teens were hospitalized, with the 16-year-old listed in critical condition and the 17-year-old listed in temporary-serious condition, police said.

The men were questioned and released, and the teens are in police custody, police said.

A weapon was recovered, but police did not say what kind it is.

Well, that sucks for the boys. But maybe this will help them turn their lives around.

Certainly won't help one of the boys.

*edit to add: woops, I thought one of them died. I'm glad that isn't the case and I hope you are correct.
