- Police are searching for a second suspect after officers were shot at in the middle of the night outside of a Detroit home.

Around 1 a.m. Thursday, Detroit police came out to investigate a Mini Cooper sitting in the 19700 block of Hull Street, which is near E State Fair Avenue and the Chrysler Service Drive. When officers approached the car, a man came out of a nearby house and started shooting at police.
