DETROIT (WWJ) - Police swarmed a Detroit neighborhood, Wednesday afternoon, following an officer-involved shooting.
One person was injured in an exchange of gunfire after a traffic stop on Nottingham Rd. near the intersection of E. Warren and Alter Rd. on the city's east side, according to police.
There were two people in the car: a woman who was driving, and a man in the passengers seat who jumped out and ran.
Detroit Police Deputy Chief Marlon Wilson said the man then pulled out a gun and opened fire at police.
"In fear for their life, our officers returned fire," Wilson said. "The suspect actually went around a home and exchanged (gunfire) with the officers again. A gun battle happened at that point."
That's when, Wilson said, the suspect was shot and wounded.
The man. whose name has not been released. was taken to a local hospital where he was listed in temporary serious condition Wednesday evening.
The female driver was not injured, and no police officers were hurt.
The investigation is ongoing.
