Source: woman wanted in Detroit officer's death located, unlikely to be charged

- A source in the Detroit Police Department said the woman who was wanted in connection with the crash and death of a Detroit Police Officer was found in a nearby hospital.

The police source tells FOX 2 that the woman checked into Grace Hospital just hours after the accident that killed Myron Jarrett late Friday night. According to the source, the woman is still at the hospital and is cooperating with police and it is "very unlikely" that she will be charged.

Jarrett, an 8-year veteran of the force, was hit and killed while outside his car near Monica and Puritan on the city's west side.

Over the weekend, police released surveillance video of a person of interest wanted in connection with the crash and death of a Detroit police officer.
