A Detroit man and woman have been charged in the shooting of a Detroit police officer earlier this month.

Deantrae Corey Oneal and Breanna Washington, both 22, were charged in the May 18 shooting. Officer Mario Rodriguez, who was shot in the abdomen, is recovering from his injury.

The incident happened on the city's west side when Rodriguez and two other officers stopped to investigate an SUV in an alley in the 16500 block of Greenfield.

Oneal, who was driving the vehicle, put it in reverse, striking one of the officers, then jumped out of the SUV and allegedly fired a handgun, striking Rodriguez, said police.

Oneal, who was struck several times in the gunfight, was later found hiding in the basement of a home in the 15700 block of Prest, said police.

Washington, who was a passenger in the SUV, allegedly gave false information to the police.

She was charged with being an accessory after the fact and is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in 36th District Court.

Oneal was charged with a dozen offenses and was arraigned Tuesday in 36th District Court, receiving a $100,000 cash/surety bond. He is scheduled for a probablcause conference on June 4 and a preliminary exam on June 11.

The charges against Oneal are: Home invasion, second degree, felon in possession, carrying a concealed weapon, resisting a police officer causing serious impairment, two counts of resisting a police officer causing injury, three counts of assault with intent to murder, and three counts of felony firearm.
