Retired Detroit Police Officer Shot On West Side
November 29, 2016: The Detroit Police Department received word that an “off-duty” police officer had been shot and was being treated at Providence Hospital. The 2nd Precinct assigned a scout to make the hospital and take the report.
It turns out the off-duty Detroit LEO is actually a retired Detroit LEO.
The retired LEO was in the area of Forrer & Plymouth on Detroit’s west side when he pulled to the side of the road to text his wife. A man dressed in a dark hoodie approached and a struggle ensued.
During the struggle the retired Detroit Police Officer was shot in the hip. He conveyed himself to the hospital. No word on his condition at this time.
