There’s a recent uptick in violent crime in the city of Detroit.
Investigators don’t know what sparked the shooting, but officers have found suspects who they believe were involved.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig spoke with kids to find out how they feel about the police, while trying to encourage the youth to befriend them.
A Detroit police officer reportedly under investigation has been found dead in Sterling Heights.
Officers allegedly failed to properly log drugs into evidence and mishandled expensive items confiscated from drug dealers, including big-screen TV’s and a gaming system.
The system, called “Okay-to-Say,” allows kids to anonymously report information about weapons, bullying and other problems.
“There’s a dangerous man now walking the streets, when he should never have been let out in the first place.”
Between 1995 and 2000, police killed nearly 50 people, including six people who were unarmed and shot in the back.
“I find that appalling and certainly not reflective of the Detroit today,” Chief James Craig said.
About 400 people gathered at Hart Plaza for a protest Thursday evening against the shooting of an unarmed teenager in Missouri.
