Rick Coley, West Bloomfield Shooting Suspect, May Have Been Headed For Divorce

The shooter believed responsible for killing a West Bloomfield Police officer and hitting several others may have been going through a divorce, Township Clerk Cathy Shaughnessy said Monday.

Investigators believe the suspect is Rick Coley, according to the Detroit Free Press.

He is believed to be barricaded in a house in a West Bloomfield subdivision near Halsted and Pontiac Trail and was firing shot as late as this morning.

Patrick O'Rourke, a 12-year veteran of the West Bloomfield force, was shot and killed Sunday night as he and others were responding to shots fired at the house on the 4000 block of Forest Edge.
