Authorities: State trooper shot in leg in Detroit

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a Michigan State Police trooper has been shot in the leg while in pursuit of several suspects wanted for impersonating officers.

Police say the shooting happened early Monday on the city's east side. Police say two suspects were taken into custody and two may still be at large.

Police say the trooper was transported to a hospital for treatment and was expected to be OK.

Police tell WWJ-AM that troopers were assisting Detroit officers in trying to track down a group of men wanted stopping motorists to rob them.

A person who answered the phone Monday morning at a state police office says a statement was expected to be issued later in the day
