DETROIT (WWJ) - An off-duty Detroit Public Schools safety officer was involved in a shooting Friday morning on the city’s southwest side.

WWJ’s Chrystal Knight reports the shooting happened around 6 a.m. in the 1500 block of Clark Street, near Clark Park.

DPS spokesperson Steve Wasko said the off-duty DPS officer was responding to a call for help from his mother when the shooting occurred.

“The officer, who lives down the street from his mother’s house, received a call from his mother early this morning regarding an intruder in the home,” said Wasko.

The officer rushed to his mother’s house where he confronted the alleged intruder and fired his weapon, Wasko said.

Authorities say the intruder was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital where he was last listed in temporary-serious condition.

Wasko said the safety officer will be suspended temporarily as police investigate the shooting.
