Don't shoot the plumbers!

Elderly Detroit man opens fire on plumbing crew in an apparent misunderstanding.

DETROIT — An elderly man who had reportedly been drinking fired several rounds at a team of plumbers who had come to work on his house.

As reported by WJBK, the local Fox afflilate, the shooting occurred on the city's West side. Plumber Austin Molter was quoted as saying:

"We were running up the stairs and he was just shooting rounds off at us... we exit the house and hide around our vans, and he comes out the door just firing rounds off. So, I just called 911 and, you know, the whole time I was just scared for my life."
