Shot fired at Detroit police during traffic stop
Four people were arrested Friday night after a shot was fired at Detroit police during a traffic stop on the city’s west side.
Officers pulled over a Ford Explorer near Pinehurst and Pilgrim at about 8 p.m., but when it stopped, “the driver side rear passenger exited the vehicle and fired one shot at the officers then fled on foot,” investigators said in a statement.
No officers were injured in the incident.
After a brief search, police found and detained the alleged shooter behind a residence in the 15800 block of Manor, about two blocks away, according to the release.
The 22-year-old man was arrested and taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital for a small laceration to his right foot, authorities reported.
Meanwhile, the other three occupants were arrested on outstanding warrants. Other details about their cases were not released late Friday.
