Officer Shot Twice During Raid Of Saginaw Home 10-30-2010

Saginaw police have released details on an officer shooting Saturday morning.
Saginaw Police Chief Gerald Cliff said an Emergency Services Team arrived at an upstairs apartment at 429 South Fourth Ave., to deliver a search warrant for illegal property and drugs at about 5 a.m.
When the tactical team arrived at the doorway a male suspect shot at officers using a hand gun, Cliff said.
One officer was hit by two rounds -- one in the chest and one in the abdomen -- but was not injured because he was wearing full body armor.
Cliff said three officers returned fire, hitting the suspect in the upper leg and left arm.
Police haven't released information about the suspect, except that he is described as an African American male in his 30s.
Officers from the Saginaw City Police Department, Saginaw Township Police Department and the Frankenmuth Police Department make up the Emergency Services Team.
It was the second tactical performed at the apartment this year, Cliff said.
Police said that last time anything like this happened in the city of Saginaw was 17 years ago when an officer was shot serving an eviction notice.
The suspect was transported to St. Mary's of Michigan hospital in Saginaw.
Officials said he has non-life-threatening injuries.
