Detroit officer shot by fugitive in April dies

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Detroit police say one of their offices has died after sustaining head wounds in a shootout with a paroled armed robber and slaying suspect six months ago.

Police spokeswoman Kelly Miner tells the Detroit Free Press that Officer Patrick Hill died about 7:30 p.m. Saturday. She declined to release other details.

The fugitive died in the April 2 shooting that followed a car chase. Police say they were seeking parolee Matthew R. Joseph as a suspect in a March homicide.

Sgt. Jeffrey Pacholski was wounded and was treated at a hospital. He and Hill were members of a federal, state and local anti-crime task force.

State prison records show Joseph was paroled Oct. 2, 2012, after serving time for a 2006 robbery.
