A Detroit police officer was shot late Monday night while chasing down a suspect on a crime spree.

The officer was shot in the shoulder with a sawed-off shotgun in the area of 7 Mile and Hayes roads around 11 p.m. The injury was not life-threatening and the officer is expected to make a full recovery.

Police were able to arrest the 21-year-old suspect, who they say was in the middle of an hours-long crime spree.

"A domestic call came out; it was about a shooting incident where he shot his father or stepfather; we're not certain. That's what started the crime spree. Carjacked a vehicle after that, same day, a couple hours later after shooting that victim and we were able to locate him today and make the arrest after he shot our supervisor," Detroit Police Chief James Craig told FOX2.
