An 80-year-old man in Flint, Mich., was able to fire off two shots from his handgun and drive away five male teenagers who were trying to rob him.

The man thought he may have hit one of the suspects, but he wasn’t sure, Michigan Live reported.

He called police around 9:45 p.m. to report the shooting at his home, which occurred last week, the online news site reported. Police have yet to make any arrests.
