DETROIT — A 30-year-old Detroit man is dead after a shoot-out early Wednesday with Detroit police officers who were patrolling an east-side area plagued by robberies.
Two officers were patrolling near 8 Mile and Hickory, just west of Schoenherr, about 1:30 a.m. when they came across two men running from an alley, said police spokesman James Tate. Several individuals have been robbed in that area, he said.
As the officers got out of their car, one of the two men began shooting and hit the officers' vehicle, Tate said. The officers returned fire, fatally wounding 30-year-old Andre Stinson. The other suspect ran away and was still at large Wednesday, he said.
