After an early morning manhunt, two people in the Detroit area have been arrested for shooting a Michigan State Police officer early this morning.

The undercover trooper was shot and critically wounded at about 1:30 this morning near an apartment complex on Detroit's west side. The undercover narcotics officer was in the area when shots were fired by an unknown person. The officer was said to be struck in the body and taken to an area hospital where he was reported to be in critical condition.

His condition was recently upgraded to stable and his injuries will likely require surgery, according to Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw.

Residents Evacuated

Shaw told reporters that State Police officers locked down the apartment complex near the shooting and evacuated all residents while they searched for a gunman.

WDIV reports that officers used video surveillance footage to identify a possible suspect, then made a traffic stop after tailing the suspect's car.

“We’re in the process of determining who’s actually involved and who’s not actually involved,” Shaw said.

Both people in the vehicle were arrested as investigators attempt to determine what happened. Shaw went on to say that he's confident one of the two people in custody is responsible for the shooting.

“We’re feeling pretty good about it,” he said. “We feel pretty confident that the neighborhood’s safer today.”
