Women Dead Following Detroit Shooting

DPD officer shot in the leg during barricaded situation

Two people are dead and a police officer was shot after a suspect retreated inside a home in northeast Detroit on Sunday night.

Two women were killed, one in her 60s and another in her 50s or 60s.

The suspect killed a neighbor and another woman who tried checking on a loved one just before 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Detroit police Assistant Chief Arnold Williams told reporters.

As of 7 a.m., the scene is still active, Officer Dan Donakowski, a Detroit Police Department spokesman, said.

"Right now a lot of people may think that someone who suffers from mental illness may not affect them - but that's not the case".

Talking about why he chose to do the film, Akshay Kumar told India Today Television, "Nobody wants to talk about it. The movie has received tremendous reviews and this is the only reason, it witnessed good growth over the weekend.

"It goes back to mental illness", he said.

The suspect had no criminal history, but is licensed to carry a concealed firearm, and has seven guns registered in his name.

The incident comes weeks after Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss Jr., 25, a Detroit native and two-year member of the police department, was shot in the head the night of January 24 while responding to a domestic dispute.

According to Williams, the initial shooting reportedly followed an argument involving at least one of the victims, however, he said details are scant at the moment.

Police are also dealing with a second shooter. Anybody suffering from a mental illness who is not being treated can basically resort to any type of violence. "This is national. When will it end?"
