UPDATE: Glenn Doss' condition is declining and the swelling on his brain has increased, according to his mother. He has not regained consciousness yet.


DETROIT, Mich. -- A police officer is in critical condition after being shot late Wednesday, Jan. 24.

Our ABC partners at WXYZ in Detroit say it happened on McDougall Street near East Grand Boulevard around 11 p.m.

Officers say this all started with a possible domestic dispute. The suspected gunman called police and told them he had assaulted his wife. When police arrived, they say the man was outside with a gun. He fired and hit the police officer who was sitting in the passenger seat of a squad car.

The suspect was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Thursday after police fired a chemical agent inside the home, forcing the suspect out.

The officer who was shot is a two-year veteran of the police force. He is 25 years old.

The suspect had been arrested for drugs once, but does not have any convictions on his record. He had nine guns registered to his name. At one point, he did have a Concealed Pistol License, but police say he lost his certification.

UPDATE: WXYZ is now reporting that the officer has been identified as 25-year-old Glenn Doss, a 2-year veteran of the force.

Note: WZZM 13 wrongly reported that the officer shot had died in an earlier report. This was an unfortunate mistake due to human error and we deeply regret that mistake.
