DETROIT (WWJ) - Two people are in custody after an overnight shootout with police on Detroit's east side. 

The incident unfolded around 2:15 a.m. Friday as officers were investigating criminal activity at the Tycoons Executive Club, on 8 Mile Road just east of Groesbeck. Police say two men opened fire on the officers, who returned fire.

The suspects took off running, but surrendered a short time later and were taken into custody.
