Shots Fired At Detroit Police Officers

DETROIT (WWJ) – For the second time within a week, Detroit police officers were targeted while on patrol.

WWJ’s Ron Dewey reports that the officers were on patrol near Kithcener and Frued streets on the city’s east side around 9 p.m. Tuesday, when a man began firing shots at their squad car.

Nobody was hurt, but the shootings brought a search throughout the neighborhood, with no sign of the gunman.

The suspect is described as about six feet tall with a slim build and goatee. Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police at 313-596-2200.
