A man who was wanted for killing two men and seriously wounding two others had to turn himself in twice before police in Detroit would arrest him! The 36-year-old man got into an argument at a party, got a gun and opened fire. Four people were shot and two died. The man turned himself in at a fire station about two hours later. Fire officials called police, but officers never showed up.
Police claimed that “due to area patrol units being busy handling high priority runs, no units were dispatched to the location.” The man eventually went to a police station, where he was arrested.
The Police Chief ordered an investigation into why nobody went to the fire station. Detroit police have gone through serious budget cuts. The city recently imposed a 10 percent pay cut and 12-hour work day for officers.
