Police from a Detroit-Wayne County task force were involved in a shooting Monday morning in Harrison Township while trying to arrest  the man with a felony warrant.

The Macomb County Sheriff said they were called to the area of N. Pointe Pkwy and 16 Mile to a report of multiple shots fired. When deputies arrived, several cars were driving off.

We're told police were trying to arrest a suspect wanted out of Detroit for a felony warrant when they exchanged gun fire. Neither the suspect or police were injured in the shooting.

Police were looking for Washington since this morning, he allegedly exchanged gunfire with officers from a Detroit-Wayne County taskforce in Harrison Township. Thankfully there were no injuries.

Officers were trying to arrest Washington on a felony warrant, he was wanted to testify in a trial for a 2018 murder but never showed up to court. That case was dismissed because of his absence. FOX 2 is told the charges in that case have been reissued and now that Clint Washington is in custody, it is possible he will remain there until the trial starts up again.

Police arrested him at the Soaps gas station on Livernois between Grand and Pasadena. Several units were there - special operations from the 10th Precinct were there as well.

Special operations officers had guns drawn when Washington was pulled from a car at a pump at the gas station.
