Another testament for bullet proof best for our LEOs. I didn't see any motivation for the nut job (perhaps they are looking at Sarah Palin as an accomplice?) but he got what you would expect - a swift and deadly rsponse. :-/

4 Detroit police officers shot, gunman dead in 'horrifying' attack
Free Press Staff Writers

It was just before 4:30 p.m. Sunday when the gunman walked into the police station.

Sgt. Carrie Schulz was shot first. Cmdr. Brian Davis raced out of an office and exchanged fire with the gunman. Davis took a bullet in the back.

Then the gunman rushed the horseshoe-shaped front desk with his weapon drawn. Sgt. Ray Saati and Officer David Anderson were hit before police killed the 38-year-old shooter.

That's how terror unfolded in the Detroit Police Department's Northwestern District, according to interviews with police sources.

All of the officers are expected to recover, according to Police Chief Ralph Godbee Jr., but the incident has raised concern about security in the city's many community police precincts and districts.

The four officers wounded Sunday were taken to Sinai-Grace Hospital, where hundreds of other officers came to support them. Mayor Dave Bing also was there, meeting with the shooting victims, spokesman Dan Lijana said.

Godbee did not release the names of those shot, but the Free Press obtained them from sources, including people who worked inside the building.

Davis underwent surgery for his wound and was in critical condition, but Godbee said his prognosis is very good.

Schulz was hit in the chest, but her bulletproof vest protected her. She was treated and released, Godbee said. On her Facebook page Sunday night, Schulz posted this partial status update: "Leave it to say bullet proof vests really do work! I am REALLY sore and have a few holes in the clothes but luckily no holes in me."
