Carey answered, they said, and was holding a large knife.
"When they entered the room the invidual was armed with a pretty large butcher knife," Detroit Dep. Chief David Lavalley said.
The two officers shot Carey in the chest and the shoulder. He was taken to the hospital where he later died from his injuries. Carey was release from prison just a few weeks ago. On July 12th, he was freed after serving his ten years in prison.
"In addition to being a bank robber suspect he was also wanted on parole violation warrant," Lavalley said. "This individual was involved in bank robbery ten years ago for which he was arrested and convicted for."
Detroit Police and Michigan State Police are investigating. Once finsihed, they'll hand it over to the Wayne County Prosecutor to see if this was a justifiable homicide.
