View Comments

Detroit Police make an arrest in the murder earlier this year of a Detroit man killed while trying to protect his autistic child.  

Police Chief Ralph Godbee said 35-year-old David Adams was shot after a neigborhood at Littlefield and Chalfonte errupted in gunfire last March.

“Mr. Adams heard the shots and went to get his son from the front porch. As Mr. Adams was taking his son into their home, he was struck and and later succomded to his injuried,” Godbee said.

Another person was also shot.

Godbee said a citizen’s tip lead to the arrest of the 28-year-old suspect, Rashad Brown.

“The citizens of Detroit are extremely sick and tired of the violence that’s going on in the city, and their efforts to give us information have really been admirable, especially in the past 30 to 60 days,” Godbee said.

Police aren’t saying what prompted the shootout.
