DETROIT (AP) — Undercover officers targeting illegal street racing have wounded a man who fired a shot at them on the city’s eastside. The shooting occurred late Friday night after the man’s vehicle nearly struck the officers’ unmarked vehicle. Detroit police say Saturday that the officers followed the vehicle, but before a marked police car arrived to assist, the vehicle stopped and the man exited with a gun. The officers identified themselves as police and told the man to drop the weapon. The police department said he shot at them and they returned fire. He was treated at a hospital and later taken to a police detention center. No officers were wounded.
