Detroit teen mistakes cops for burglars, shoots officer in face

Two Detroit Police officers were injured in a late night shooting on the city's west side.

Police Chief James Craig said it appears the shooter feared for the safety of his family, according to the Detroit Free Press. Detroit police say two officers have been wounded in the shooting while responding to a reported burglary.

The incident took place about 11:45 p.m. on Detroit's west side.

However, one of the officers remains in critical condition. The second officer, the 18-month veteran, was hit in his left arm with shrapnel and is expected to soon be released, Craig said.

The girls were attacked with a machete and baseball bats as they walked through the neighbouring town of Brentwood in September. Authorities are yet to reveal whether the bodies discovered on Wednesday are linked to the previous youths' deaths.

The 19-year-old, along with his mother and 14-year-old brother, have been detained.

"They checked it out but apparently the officers were aware of the location from across the street and were aware there were other burlgaries so they went over there and checked that", Craig said. While they were shining their flashlights, Craig says one person fired a single shot from inside the home.

The 19-year-old is remorseful and hopes the officers are OK, according to the report.

Redd said his son fired a warning shot through a window of the house, hitting both officers. "We knew then that a cop must have been shot", she said. Jim Martinez, a spokesman for Wayne County, said the autopsy conducted Sunday by the county medical examiner's office showed that Mr. Lowe died of multiple gunshot wounds.
