DETROIT (WXYZ) - Action News sources say four Detroit police officers have been shot inside the Northwest District on the city's west side. The district office is located near Warwick and Plymouth and houses both the 6th and 8th precincts.
We're told a man walked into the lobby and opened fire. He was killed by police.
The conditions of the officers are not known. A source says one of the officers is a commander, one is a patrolman. the other is a clerk.
They were rushed to Sinai Grace.
Police sources tell Action News that the gunman walked into station just as any citizen can do. They say the shooter walked past the desk and fired down a hallway hitting a female sergeant in the chest. Sources say she was wearing a bulletproof vest and should be OK.
Police tell Action News that the gunman then shot a second officer in the side of the face and neck.
Sources say a precinct commander then grabbed the wounded sergeant’s gun and exchanged shots with the gunman. The commander was then shot in the back.
Next, the gunman jumped over a counter to attempt to shoot more officers. At that point, other officers opened fire, killing him.
A camera inside the precinct captured images of the shooting and sources who have seen that video say it is graphic.
