One of the suspects asked Smith for directions to Kalamazoo Valley Community College and then pulled out a revolver. Smith pulled out his revolver to defend himself and fired two shots, hitting the suspect in his left hand.
Both of the suspects fled the scene on foot. The wounded suspect was arrested a short time later while trying to get medical attention.
