2 State Police Officers Recovering After Detroit Shooting
DETROIT (AP) — A state police sergeant shot during an incident in Detroit has been released from a hospital while another wounded officer was facing surgery, authorities said Saturday.
The injuries were not considered life-threatening.
The officers were shot Friday while assisting a Detroit team that pursues fugitives, Chief James White said.
The suspect who fired shots at state police was arrested around 7:30 p.m., White said, adding that two others in the house were not hurt.
“This is a violent fugitive-apprehension team, so it was a follow-up from a violent felony,” the Detroit chief said.
State police thanked Sinai-Grace Hospital for taking care of the officers.
“The trooper involved is scheduled for surgery … and will remain hospitalized,” state police said.
