A 70-year-old women’s basketball coach at a Detroit high school shot two men trying to attack him while walking two girls to their cars in the school parking lot Friday night.

The coach, who has not yet been named, told 7 Action News that he was walking the girls to their cars at Martin Luther King Jr. Senior High School when one of the robbers pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace.

The coach then pulled out his concealed weapon and shot both of the attackers, who once attended the high school. The first teen was found dead on the median on Larned Street, and the second teen, a 16-year-old, was shot in the stomach and is in serious condition at Detroit Receiving Hospital.

The coach has a concealed pistol license and is a reserve police officer, ABC reports.
