Four police officers wounded in Detroit, assailant killed

43140.jpegFour police officers were slightly wounded and their assailant killed on Sunday after a man walked into a police precinct and "began shooting indiscriminately," a spokeswoman for the mayor said.

Karen Dumas, who is spokeswoman for Mayor Dave Bing, said the incident began about 4:30 p.m. when the man walked into the 6th Precinct in the northwestern part of the city and opened fire with a pistol grip shotgun. The man was able to shoot four officers before one or more officers returned fire, killing him.

The most seriously injured police officer was the precinct's commander, Brian Davis, who was hit in the lower back, Ms. Dumas said. He underwent surgery at the nearby Sinai Grace Hospital on Sunday evening.

Two other male officers were hospitalized but expected to be released on Monday, according to New York Times.

While the department was "very sobered" by the shootings, Godbee said he was "just very relieved that it appears all of our officers are going to be OK."

The one-story brick building is located along the main street in what is a predominantly business district on the city's northwest side. After the shooting, city and state police squad cars converged on the scene, and an ambulance was seen taking away at least one victim.

Like other precincts in the city, there are no metal detectors at the entrance and visitors are permitted to come in and talk face-to-face with police sitting behind a large, rounded desk, according to Norman Transcript.
