    RIP Officer. I think they should bring back public hangings for these people. And between Detroit and Oakland, we could probably get the country out of debt if they charged admission.

    Sure wish there was more info. Not much to even speculate on.

    Give it more time, the details will come out. Knowing Detroit, some can speculate a professional hit, revenge, etc.... I could venture a guess that the shooter knew the guy was a cop, he knew exactly who he was shooting and why. Maybe the cop was a whistle blower and had alot of evidence on his fellow officers and they put a stop to it. I gotta stop watching so many cop shows on TV. My point, looks like cops aren't even safe anymore. The criminal maggots in Detroit really have no regards for who they shoot at or who gets hit. It's getting to be a war zone in that city, and it's spilling out into the suburbs. I know, I live in the Detroit burbs.

    There is no evidence that the shot came from outside the car (according to the article).
    Unless there were passengers in the vehicle, that only leaves two possibilities...
    One of which is the proverbial 'it just went off by itself.'

    Tough to make any kinda objective judgement-call until more info is released.

    Could be a "HIT" where the perp hid in the back,or passenger door was unlocked and a perp tried to carjack him at a stoplight

    Although they're not yet using the "S" word, it appears to be self-inflicted.

    So it's a hit from inside the car, or, self inflicted. Either way it's no good.

    Very odd indeed...

    Police said he suffered a gunshot wound to his head. Police said there is no evidence the gunshot came from outside the car.
    Sad, nonetheless.
