West Detroit – November 7 2016: At approximately 2:40AM on Monday morning, officer’s of the 4th Precinct were dispatched to The Victory Inn at 3430 Michigan in west Detroit. The dispatched call was for an F/A, or felony assault. A man with a “baseball bat” was assaulting a female in the “back of parking lot”. Officer’s can be heard volunteering to back the primary officers when an officer says “shots fired, suspect is down”. The officer also mentioned the perp “self inflicted himself in the head” and that a weapon had been recovered. Detroit EMS was immediately requested as well as a union steward. The actual encounter between the suspect and arriving officers was not heard on the public safety feed. DPD evidence techs were dispatched to the scene for a “fatal shooting”.
