Dozens of shots fired at unmarked police car in Michigan
By Joshua Rhett Miller, NY Post, June 25, 2020 |
Several people repeatedly shot at an unmarked police vehicle in Michigan during an ambush-style attack, according to a report.
Cops in Grand Rapids were interviewing potential witnesses early Thursday, just hours after an officer in an unmarked police car was peppered late Wednesday with bullets by multiple assailants, a source close to the matter told WOOD-TV.
In all, more than 24 shots were reportedly fired during the incident near Pleasant Street and Cass Avenue in the southeast Grand Rapids.
The police vehicle was struck, but the officer inside — who did not return fire — was not hurt, the station reports.
It’s unclear if the gunmen knew the person inside the unmarked car was a police officer.
An investigation is underway to track down the shooters. Anyone with additional information about the incident is asked to call Grand Rapids police at (616) 456-3400.
A message seeking comment from a Grand Rapids police spokesman was not immediately returned Thursday.
