View Comments

PONTIAC (WWJ) – A Pontiac man is facing charges after allegedly taking a shot at an Oakland County Sheriff’s detective.

Investigators say the cop was following up on a call involving an attempted armed robbery at a Chase Bank ATM at Baldwin and Yale roads around 11 p.m. Thursday.

When he asked a man to get out of the middle of the road, the person turned and fired a handgun at the detective as he drove by.

The detective wasn’t hurt.

Deputies were able to find out who the suspect was and stopped a car in the area a short time later. One of the occupants fit the description of the suspect and he was arrested.

Authorities say the 31-year old could be the same person who was seen walking up to a couple using the ATM.  They ran away after seeing the man wearing a dark hoodie and mask and reaching into his pocket.

Charges are pending.
