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

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

One of the callers said some of the people fleeing the scene were wearing police vests and driving dark Dodge Chargers. Those people were later identified as members of a Detroit-Wayne County Violent Crimes Task Force.
