Four police officers in Detroit’s Northwestern District were shot this afternoon when a gunman came in and opened fire, the Free Press has learned.

According to Sgt. Todd Eby, the gunman walked in at about 4:20 p.m. with a pistol grip shotgun. Unprovoked, he just started shooting, said Eby, who was sitting at his desk when the gunfire erupted.

Eby said officers in the building returned fire, killing the man.

Shot were Commander Brian Davis, Sgt. Ray Saati and Officer David Anderson, police said. A fourth person, a female sergeant whose name was not released, was also hit. The four have been transported to Sinai Grace hospital in Detroit.

Eby called the incident “absolutely horrifying.”

Michigan State Police are at the scene blocking traffic.

Tina Taylor, a spokeswoman for Sinai Grace hospital said no information was being released about wounded officers and that all details would have to come from Detroit police.
