As several other outlets have already reported, an attendant at the Shell station at W. Warren Ave. and the Southfield Freeway (17720 W. Warren Ave.) shot a customer last night. He was trying to shoot a different man who was stealing potato chips.

Approximately 50 protesters are at the Shell Station now. They are demanding that the business be closed down after this shooting.

The attendant in question was arrested. As of this morning, he has not been charged with a crime. However, formal charges are expected later today.

The innocent man who got shot is at a local hospital. He is currently in stable condition and is recovering from his wounds.

Officers from the Detroit Police Department are on the scene to ensure an orderly protest.

Update @ 3:09 pm
The protesters are now going through Warrendale distributing a one-page leaflet condemning the shooting. They are also asking residents to shop at one of the four black-owned gas stations in the area instead of this one.
