Video: 5 Officers Shot, 1 Killed at Detroit Drug House

May 03, 2010  | 


A Detroit police officer has been killed and four others wounded early this morning at an abandoned duplex that's a likely drug house, the Detroit News reports.

Officers faced a barrage of gunfire as they approached the yellow brick dwelling. The unidentified officer is an Eastern District patrol officer, 12-year veteran and father of a 10-year-old son.

Department spokesman John Roach said officers responded to a 911 call to the vacant house on Schoenherr, where a neighbor said shots had been fired shortly after 3:30 a.m. Police are expected to identify the killed officer at a news conference within a few hours, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The four injured officers are in temporary serious condition at St. John Hospital & Medical Center. The suspected shooter was shot and taken to an area hospital. A semi-automatic handgun and drugs were recovered from the dwelling.

Watch a news report via Fox News updating the condition of the officers. Several have been released from the hospital:
