2 Detroit officers hurt in shooting after reported burglary

DETROIT (AP) – Detroit police say two officers have been wounded in a shooting while responding to a reported burglary on the city’s west side.

Chief James Craig says several calls were made to police Sunday about a possible burglary and when officers responded about 11:45 p.m. a 19-year-old man fired a shotgun from inside the home. Craig says one officer was shot in the face and the other was wounded in the arm.

The officer shot in the face was in critical condition and the other, who may have been hit by shrapnel, was expected to be OK.

They were outside when they were fired upon. Craig says the shooter may not have realized police were at the door. Craig says the man, his mother and a sibling were taken into custody.
