Gas station clerk arrested for shooting

DETROIT, Michigan (WXYZ) - Many customers at the BP at Davison and Ewald Circle on Detroit's west side didn't notice anything wrong,  unless they tried to go inside.

"I live in Livonia and I had to stop and get gas," said LeeAnn Leh after putting her two young children in her car. "I brought the kids in. I went to open the door.  There was stuff on the ground and blood everywhere."

A van was parked in front of the business to try to prevent others from going inside.

Workers at the gas station told 7 Action News the business was victimized.

"Three men walked in at 3 a.m., started breaking stuff, and 1 of them got an A.K.  What they want at 3 in the morning?" said a worker who wanted to remain anonymous.

Detroit Police tell 7 Action News they arrested his 20-year-old co-worker and relative. Those who know the worker describe him as a college student who works 7 days a week to support his siblings.

Police say he shot two of the men in the store, a 25 and 26-year old.  Both are in temporary serious condtion.

"We're hoping it's self defense," said another worker.  "That's all I can say."
