Two Detroit officers were Wounded Sunday night as they responded to a break-in call.
The two officers were dispatched to a home when they took fire as they approached the location, with the shooter firing at them from the house with a shotgun.
The 19-year-old reportedly opened fire fearing for the “safety of his family,” according to DPD Chief James Craig.
The Man called 911 three times prior to the shooting, which took place on Detroit’s west side fifteen minutes to midnight.
While one officer suffered a mere shrapnel wound to his arm (and will be released from the hospital today), the second officer took shot to the face and is in critical condition. Both officers have been on the force for less than three years.
The shooter, his mother and 14-year-old sibling have been taken into custody, according to CNN.
