Man dies in shootout with Wayne State officer in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say a man has died in a shootout with a Wayne State University police officer in Detroit.

The school’s police Chief Anthony Holt says the department responded Wednesday night following a 911 call about shots being fired. The Detroit News says someone reported that the man was riding his bike and firing a gun, and he shot at police before the officer returned fire.

WWJ-AM reports no one else was injured. The man’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Detroit police are expected to investigate the officer-involved shooting, while Wayne State police will conduct an internal investigation. The officer has been placed on administrative duty.
