A True Hero

Police officer, Tony Edwards, was shot and killed at approximately 1:30 pm after responding to a report of gunshots at a vacant home on Schoenherr Street.

Several officers had surrounded the home, which was known to be a drug house, in response to the initial 911 call. When Officer Edwards and the other officers who were positioned in the front of the home, made entry, they were immediately met with gunfire.

Officer Edwards was fatally wounded and four other officers suffered non-life threatening wounds. The suspect was also shot and wounded by the return gunfire.

Officer Edwards had served with the Detroit Police Department for 12 years and was assigned to the Eastern District. He is survived by his wife and two kids.
