Michigan — It was just before 4:30 p.m. Sunday when the gunman walked into the police station.
Sgt. Carrie Schulz was shot first. Cmdr. Brian Davis raced out of an office and exchanged fire with the gunman. Davis took a bullet in the back.
Then the gunman rushed the horseshoe-shaped front desk with his weapon drawn. Sgt. Ray Saati and Officer David Anderson were hit before police killed the 38-year-old shooter.
That’s how terror unfolded in the Detroit Police Department’s Northwestern District, according to interviews with police sources.
All of the officers are expected to recover, according to Police Chief Ralph Godbee Jr., but the incident has raised concern about security in the city’s many community police precincts and districts.
The four officers wounded Sunday were taken to Sinai-Grace Hospital, where hundreds of other officers came to support them. Mayor Dave Bing also was there, meeting with the shooting victims, spokesman Dan Lijana said.
