Mich. trooper, officer wounded in separate shootings

The Associated Press   

CASCO TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Two Michigan law enforcement officers have been wounded in separate shootings.

A state trooper is in good condition after getting shot in the hand during a standoff in southwestern Michigan's Allegan County. Authorities had gotten word in the early morning hours that a young woman was being held against her will at a Casco Township home.

Troopers were met by gunfire after entering the home.

The Grand Rapids Press reports police have surrounded it, trying to negotiate with the gunman.

Meanwhile, a Detroit police officer has been taken to a hospital after getting shot in the elbow and hit with glass fragments. WXYZ-TV reports the officer was wounded early in the day after exchanging gunfire with a suspect, who fled on foot.

A police spokesman tells WWJ-AM the officer is expected to recover.
