Man charged with shooting at 2 Detroit officers
A 22-year-old Detroit man was charged Tuesday with shooting at two city police officers.
Mack Sheckels III, 22, allegedly shot at two officers around 7:55 p.m. Friday while they were patrolling near Midland and Manor Streets on Detroit’s west side.
The officers saw a speeding vehicle whose driver disregarded a yield sign, put on their overhead lights and stopped the vehicle.
Sheckels allegedly exited from the driver’s side rear door of the vehicle, fired a shot at the officers and ran.
Sheckels was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, two counts of felonious assault, four counts of felony firearm, resisting and obstructing a police officer and reckless use of a firearm. He is expected to be arraigned Wednesday in 36th District Court.
