Two Detroit Police Officers Found Dead
Two Detroit police officers were found dead in a home in Livonia, Michigan, on Sunday in an apparent murder-suicide, according to authorities.
Concerned family members flagged down Livonia police officers who were on patrol in the area, asking them to check on a residence Sunday afternoon.
“Our officers were on patrol and were contacted by a family member about the address behind us here,” said Livonia Captain Gregory Yon. “They wanted wellbeing check on residents at the house. When our officers entered, they discovered two people that were deceased.”
The victims were identified only as a 22-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man that were members of the Detroit Police Department (DPD).
The residence in question is located on Six Mile and Farmington Road, but investigators are still trying to piece together when the shooting occurred.
Officers also found an infant in the home. The infant was unharmed and later turned over to a relative.
“We’ll have our chaplains here, our peer support team here but none of that can take some of the heartbreak away from what our officers are dealing with,” said DPD Chief James White.
The investigation is still ongoing.
