Police say detectives were in the area investigating a former case when they saw four men arguing in the street. One of the men — later identified as 27-year-old Ronito Gomez — had a handgun and was going after the other men, according to police.

When the detectives intervened and announced their presence, Gomez allegedly entered a black Nissan Altima, backed toward the officers and pointed his weapon at them. At that point, one of the officers fired a single shot.

Police believe Gomez’s vehicle was struck by the officer’s shot.

Gomez fled from the scene and remains at large. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police at 313-267-4600.
