Officer in Detroit 'critical' after shooting
DETROIT - Detroit's police chief says a university police officer is in "critical" condition after being shot while on duty near the campus of Wayne State University.
James Craig told reporters in the area on Tuesday night that the five-year police veteran was shot once and was in surgery.
He says the officer was on patrol when he radioed in and said he was investigating possible thefts from cars. The officer said he was going to speak to someone.
Officers who arrived on the scene found the officer injured on the ground.
The chief said a "massive manhunt" with local, state and federal authorities was underway.
Craig also cited four officers shot around the country over the weekend, calling it a "very dangerous" time for officers.
