Two Detroit police officers were shot and wounded in an unprovoked attack on Wednesday night. Both officers suffered injuries but neither were described as life-threatening. 

60-year old Raymond Durham was taken into custody after a brief manhunt. Durham had gunshot wounds to his leg, an apparent injury incurred after his initial exchange with officers.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig stated, "Clearly, he was aggressively trying to kill our officers."

In a strange twist, sources are stating that Durham's DNA has been linked to the 2016 shooting death of a Wayne State Police Officer as well. Durham's DNA was apparently located on multiple points at that shooting. 

A suspect in Officer Rose's murder was taken into custody but ultimately released.
