Police: Suspects Break Into Apartment, Shoot Man Who Wouldn’t Let Them Use Phone

FARMINGTON (WWJ) – Farmington police are searching for a pair of suspects who shot and injured a man after breaking into his apartment.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. Tuesday at the Farmington Plaza Apartments near Shiawassee and Orchard Lake Road.

The 40-year-old resident told police that two African-American males dressed in all dark clothing knocked on his door, said they had car trouble and asked to use his phone. When the victim refused, police say the suspects allegedly forced entry into the apartment and began to struggle with the victim.

During the struggle, one of the suspects pulled out a pistol and shot the victim in the leg, according to police. Both suspects then fled the scene.

The victim was transported to Beaumont Hospital where he is in stable condition.

Investigators are still trying to identify the suspects, but say there is no immediate threat to the public as a result of this incident.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police at 248-474-4700.
