Ambushed Detroit Officer 'Never Had a Chance'
March 02, 2011
Detroit Police Officer Brian Huff stepped onto the front porch of an Eastern District home on May 3, yelled "Police," and began to push the front door open with his foot. As he began to step inside the residence, he held his flashlight in hand and his service weapon remained in its holster.
Jason Gibson, 26, then allegedly fired three .45-caliber rounds from inside the home at Officer Huff — two struck and killed the officer who "never had a chance," Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Thomas Trzcinski told jurors Wednesday.
