A gunman walked into a Detroit police precinct [Sunday] afternoon and shot a commander and three other officers before he was killed, police sources confirmed.Cmdr. Brian Davis was shot in the hand and side. Officer David Anderson was â€?shot in the head but is alert and talking and moving his limbs.â€? Sergeants Ray Saati and Carrie Schulz were grazed.
Cmdr. Brian Davis, in charge of the 6th precinct, was shot in the hand and side and was undergoing surgery this evening, a police source said. Officer David Anderson was shot in the head but is alert and talking and moving his limbs, the source said.
Other reports indicate two other officers were grazed by gunfire and suffered minor wounds.
Police said the man was armed with a small shotgunâ€¦.
Sunday's shooting capped off a bloody weekend that saw at least 10 people shot since Friday night â€” four at the precinct, three outside a strip club, and three murder victims found in a house in the 14000 block of Faircrest.
The shooting occurred at the 6th Precinct, just west of the Southfield Freeway and south of Interstate 96. Like most precincts in the city, there are no metal detectors in the entrance and visitors can come in and talk face-to-face with officers. [Emphasis added.]
Four Detroit police officers shot inside precinct by George Hunter and Mark Hicks, The Detroit News, Last Updated: January 23, 2011, 8:17 p.m.]
The shooter, Lamar Moore, 38, â€?was scheduled to be sentenced Monday for his role in a double homicide.â€? [Police fear 'war on cops'; At least 11 shot in 24 hours; death toll apace with 2010 uptick]
Itâ€™s always a great idea to leave a double-murderer out on bail following his conviction.
At least Detroit News reporters George Hunter and Mark Hicks spoke of â€?woundsâ€? and â€?the wounded,â€? rather than the obscene current MSM rule, whereby wounds are turned into â€?injuries,â€? and the wounded into â€?the injured,â€? as if getting shot in the head were some sort of accident, like slipping on a banana peel.
As for the locale, itâ€™s Detroit. It wasnâ€™t because of accidents that white folks left townâ€¦ automakers left townâ€¦ every single supermarket left town. â€?Dâ€? spells Detroitâ€¦ and diversity.
