A suspect was in custody in the shooting of two Detroit police officers who were injured last night and listed in critical condition, the Detroit News reports. Police Chief James Craig said one officer was shot in the neck. The other was shot in the ankle; body armor stopped two rounds to that officer’s upper torso.

Craig said the incident started at about 8:15 p.m. when the officers saw a man later identified as Raymond Durham “acting fidgety.” Craig said when they approached the man, he pulled a handgun and opened fire. He said the officers returned fire. Durham had a gunshot wound to the leg. Craig said the shootings occurred in the same area where Collin Rose, a Wayne State University police officer, was shot in the head by an unknown person while on duty Nov. 22. He died the next day.
