Two Detroit officers shot in the line of duty, suspect dead

The Associated Press

DETROIT- Two city police officers shot in the line of duty and have been listed in serious condition. The suspected gunman was shot dead at the scene.

The officers, one man and one woman, were investigating prostitution-related activity at about 6 p.m. Tuesday when they were shot, police spokesman James Tate told the Detroit Free Press.

Tate could not confirm any other details.

Police said an off-duty Wayne County sheriff's reserve officer fired his weapon at the suspect, but they did not say whether his shots killed the man.

The two officers, who work in the department's Eastern District, are being treated at Detroit Receiving Hospital.
