3 Detroit Police Officers Shot, 2 Women Killed

By Katherine Lam, Fox News

Three Detroit police officers were shot and two women were killed Sunday when a gunman opened fire, and reportedly barricaded himself in a home during the “melee” in an hourslong standoff.

Police said they last had contact with the barricaded suspect around 2 a.m. It’s unclear if the suspect is still inside the home. However, police believe there may be a third person killed in the incident. A woman, the suspect’s girlfriend, was missing, according to WXYZ.

The standoff began around 10 p.m. when police received a call about shots fired at a home in east Detroit. Police arrived and found two women and an off-duty Detroit Public Schools Community District police officer shot, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said during a Monday news conference.

“The suspect was heard saying prior to the instances, ‘I will not be taken without a fight,’” Craig said. “So he clearly expressed an intention to do harm and he clearly expressed intentions to hurt police officers.”
