Southfield Police Shooting: Cops Shoot Two Men After Apparant Break-In On March 4

(SOUTHFIELD, Mich.) -- Southfield Police shot two suspects Monday morning after responding to a reported break-in.

According to the Detroit Free Press, officers responded to the 21000 block of Potomac Street shortly after 3:30 a.m. after a resident reported someone possibly breaking into their home. When the police arrived, they encountered three men who ran from the address in question and got into a vehicle waiting on the street.

When police approached the vehicle, the suspects apparently attempted to flee by ramming the patrol car and nearly running over the responding officers.

Police fired at the vehicle, hitting two of the suspects in the car. After a brief chase, the police arrested five suspects in total. The two who suffered gunshot wounds are expected to survive, according to the Free Press.
