Around 4 a.m. on Saturday, police were pursuing a newer black Ford Fusion with silver rims. The suspects in the car fired gunshots at police near Davison Street and Dexter Avenue.

The officers continued their pursuit after the squad car was damaged, and fortunately, none were injured according to police.

"These are the heroes on the frontlines who continue to bravely serve our community in the face of danger," said Detroit Police Chief James White.

The suspect in the front passenger seat was a white male with a black ski mask and no shirt. The suspect in the back passenger seat was an armed black male with a black ski mask, a dark hoodie with writing on the back, black pants with a white stripe, and white sneakers, said the Detroit Police Department.
