A man was killed during a shootout at a Detroit police station
A 64-year-old man was killed Sunday in a shootout at a Detroit police station. He first tried to shoot an officer behind bulletproof glass before officers exchanged gunfire with him.
The shooter entered the building that houses the Southfield Police Department around 2:20 p.m. with a handgun and pointed it at an officer sitting behind bullet-proof glass.
Refusing requests to put down the gun, the man started firing at the desk officer. The first officer to respond was shot in the shoulder during the incident.
Both men were taken to a nearby hospital after the incident was over. The wounded police officer was reported to be in stable condition Sunday night and was expected to live. The 64-year-old shooter later died from his injuries at the hospital.
Authorities are unsure why the man opened fire at the police station. Police Chief said investigators are trying to figure out why the gunman carried out the attack because the 64-year-old man had no known grievance with police officers.
