Two dead, Detroit police officer shot

Two dead, Detroit police officer shot

A male officer was shot Sunday night during a barricaded gunman situation on Detroit's east side, police said. The suspect began shooting at police as they arrived to the scene, which provoked the barricaded gunman situation.

Sunday evening around 10:30 p.m. police responded to reports of shots fired at a home on Lamont Street off Seven Mile Road between Mound and Ryan roads in northeast Detroit. The gunman reportedly told police he "won't go down without a fight".

Police believe the shooters know each other and it's unclear which one shot the police officer.

Two women - both neighbors - were fatally shot at the scene as well, Williams said. The officer was shot in the leg in the knee area and is now in stable condition in the hospital.


The suspect, who has no previous criminal history, is a valid CPL holder and has at least seven guns registered to him, according to Williams.

Police are also dealing with a second shooter. Anybody suffering from a mental illness who is not being treated can basically resort to any type of violence.
