1 Detroit officer dead, 4 others wounded
One officer was killed, four were wounded in Detroit early this morning, following a phone call from a worried neighbor who said she heard gunshots near her home.
Officer Brian Huff, 44, was shot and killed while on duty. Two of the four wounded officers have been released.
Suspect Jason Gibson, 25, has been charged several times, including for attempting to disarm an officer in 2007.
Everett, who uses alias names, was arrested last November for carrying a concealed weapon and released on a $200,000 bond.
Police Chief Warren Evans says the suspect, who has not been charged, should already have been behind bars.
Commander Steve Dolunt, Deputy Commander of the Eastern District, told Fox 2 News the shooting was unexpected.
"From what I understand this is the first time in history the police department has had five police officers shot at the same time."
Dolunt said Huff was apart of the back-up unit. The veteran officer was "just making sure the rookies were okay," he said.

BP said they will try closing up the well causing the oil spurge, in 6-8 days.
Environmentalists are testing the water supplies to determine any health hazards.
