Detroit cop shot on city's west side

The Detroit News

A police officer was shot on Detroit's west side early Monday and has been taken to the hospital, police said.

The officer was shot on the 20500 block of Lesure, said Officer Jennifer Moreno. She had no information about the officer's condition or the circumstances of the shooting. She said she did not know if the incident took place during a traffic stop.

An onlooker at the scene near Eight Mile appeared to show Detroit SWAT activity in a Periscope broadcast.

"They are mobile," amateur videographer @AlexFireChaser said as the flashing lights on a large vehicle could be seen across the street. "Yelling going on now."

Officially, Moreno said, "all we have right now is that an officer was shot."

"The situation is really fluid right now," she said.
