Michigan State Police are assisting in the investigation of the shooting.

According to a statement by the Michigan State Police posted on Twitter, the occupant approached Chief Johnson who was working a patrol stop near the parade route.

"Preliminary investigation indicates the officer, who was working a traffic point for the Juneteenth Celebration Parade, was fired upon by the lone occupant of a vehicle who drove up to him at the traffic point. Upon taking fire, the officer returned fire, striking the suspect."

A witness who wishes to remain anonymous tells ABC-12 that he saw the officer fire the deadly shot. Video of that account is viewable here.

“I saw an officer maybe ten feet to the left of me in front of a car with his gun out. I didn’t see if anybody shot out of the car but I did see the officer shoot into the car and I could tell that he, from his look, like he mortally wounded somebody. He instantly fell to the ground crying because I felt like he didn’t want to do whatever he had to do.”
