DETROIT – The latest on the shooting of an unarmed man by a suburban Detroit police officer (all times local):
A watchdog group wants a suburban police officer who fatally shot an unarmed 35-year-old Detroit man to be suspended.
The Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality said Thursday that the suspension "is necessary until the facts" of the shooting "are known."
Police have not released the name of the man who was killed, saying only that a man sought in a theft in Dearborn was shot after struggling with an Dearborn officer after a foot chase on Detroit's west side.
Detroit Chief James Craig told reporters that the officer suffered minor injuries and that his uniform was ripped. Police said the dead man was sought on a misdemeanor warrant.
