Four Detroit police officers shot inside precinct

Things are heating up in Detroit.
Blistering cold temps, no work, rampant anger!
Oh it can get nuts here.

All the officers shot will be o.k., and you can bet no one will ever just walk into a Detroit Police station unchecked ever again !

Detroit News
A gunman walked into a Detroit police precinct this afternoon and shot a commander and three other officers before he was killed, police sources confirmed.

Cmdr. Brian Davis, in charge of the 6th precinct, was shot in the hand and side and was undergoing surgery this evening, a police source said. Officer David Anderson was shot in the head but is alert and talking and moving his limbs, the source said.

Other reports indicate two other officers were grazed by gunfire and suffered minor wounds.

Police said the man was armed with a small shotgun.

The victims were taken to nearby Sinai Grace Hospital shortly after the 4:30 p.m. shooting. Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and Police Chief Ralph Godbee arrived at the hospital early this evening to visit the wounded.

Earlier, Bing and Deputy Mayor Saul Green visited the police precinct to offer support.

Sunday's shooting capped off a bloody weekend that saw at least 10 people shot since Friday night — four at the precinct, three outside a strip club, and three murder victims found in a house in the 14000 block of Faircrest.

The shooting occurred at the 6th Precinct, just west of the Southfield Freeway and south of Interstate 96. Like most precincts in the city, there are no metal detectors in the entrance and visitors can come in and talk face-to-face with officers.
