DETROIT – A gunman opened fire inside a Detroit police precinct on Sunday, wounding four officers including a commander before he was shot and killed by police, authorities said.

The gunman walked in through the precinct's revolving door around 4:20 p.m. with a pistol grip shotgun and opened fire, Sgt. Todd Eby, who was sitting at his desk in the precinct at the time of the shooting, told the Detroit Free Press. He said officers shot back at the gunman, killing him.

Godbee said the gunman has been identified but it was "too early to characterize" him while the investigation was ongoing.

Godbee a whole lot brighter than sheriff idiot in Tucson.

Let’s see. Guy walks into a police station and tries to kill as many people as he can, and gets four before he’s stopped. Another guy goes to a political rally where a bunch of mostly or entirely unarmed people have gathered and he tries to kill as many people as he can, and gets nine.

Do the math. Guns save lives.

This sounds like when the alien broke into the police station and wacked the cops looking for Sarah Conner!
Has anyone seen Sarah Conner?
(Terminator)

Point of order. The Terminator wasn't an alien. He was a man-made robot from the future.

That being said, prayers for the wounded officers.

He only plays one. In real life, he's a flaming liberal.

Can’t wait for Krugman to get to the bottom of the shooter’s motivations.

Could be wrong; but my first guess: his name is Jamal or Malik.. .or Elijah. (OK, my first 'three' guesses.)

OTOH. ..could be John. . .

It’s got to be somebody whose name is probably immediately identifiable as ROP, since they’re not even releasing his name. And remember, we never know exactly why they do it...I mean, could it be that?...nah...

This story is all wrong, I believe it was an Automatic Shotgun with a pistol grip.
The author needs reeducation.

Nonsense. This wouldn’t have happened if high capacity pistol magazines were illegal.

OR, it could be they're waiting to at least have conversation with the perps family before they go public.............

And as a side note, the perp was black, it was a black neighborhood and the officers shot were black........NOT ROP...........

No, it appears to have been just a thug wanting to kill some cops. I read that he was also somehow involved in a double homicide case.
