4 Detroit Police Officers Wounded in Shooting at Station

Four Detroit police officers were wounded Sunday when a man entered the sixth precinct station and opened fire. The gunman, whose identity has not been released, was shot and killed by officers.

The shooting occurred around 4:25 p.m. Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee said the man walked into the precinct and “indiscriminately began firing and as you can imagine utter chaos and pandemonium took place."

"Through it all, our officers maintained courageous calm," he said. "They returned fire, they took cover, they did all the things we train them to do under pressure."

One male officer was shot in the lower back and two male officers were grazed in the head. A female officer was hit in the chest but was protected by a bulletproof vest. Godbee says all officers are expected to “be OK.” Their names will not be released until their families are notified of the shooting.
