A 18-year-old girl and her 13-year-old brother were robbed at gunpoint while walking home from a gas station on Detroit's west side Monday night, police say.

The brother tells Fox 2's Andrea Isom the suspect "put a gun up to us, to our head, and said 'Give me everything. If you don't I'm going to shoot you.'"

The siblings gave the suspects a tablet and took off running back towards their apartment complex.

"I seen them running back into the apartment complex and they were screaming and hollering," says Deborah Andrews, the kids' aunt. She says kids seem to be targeted in their neighborhood, near Schoolcraft and Evergreen roads. "I'm willing to stand up for mine, and my kids and my community. Enough is enough, and I'm tired. And that's just that."
