Detroit (WWJ)- Detroit police are investigating a deadly shooting that involves a retired cop. 

Police say the retired officer shot a young man who forced his way into a home on Coyle Street on the city’s westside.  Police aren’t saying if the retired officer lived in the house. 

The break-in and shooting happened around 1:30 p.m. Friday. 

The suspected burglar is between 19 and 23 years old.  Names have not been released. Police say a preliminary information indicates he was carrying some kind of weapon and was shot several times. 

Police say the veteran officer retired a couple years ago.  He was questioned by investigators. 

It is likely that a report on the incident will be forwarded to the Wayne County Prosecutor who will decide if any criminal charges will be filed.
