Suspect in custody after shooting, domestic dispute on Lodge Fwy. in Detroit


Detroit — Police said they have a suspect in custody in connection with a domestic violence incident and shooting that happened early Thursday on the Lodge Freeway near Warren Avenue, officials said.

"A suspect has been taken into custody in this incident," Michigan State Police said in a tweet Thursday afternoon. "The investigation is continuing."

They also said the southbound lanes of the Lodge Freeway at Interstate 94 were now open to traffic.

Earlier in the day, state police had shut down the freeway's southbound lanes at M-8, along with ramps in the area to investigate the incident for about an hour and a half. After that portion reopened, SB Lodge was closed at Interstate 94, also for about an hour and a half.

Detroit police officers received a call at about 5 a.m. from a woman who reported someone fired shots at her vehicle, according to Michigan State Police. The woman told them she went to one of the Detroit casinos to file a report and she was referred to the state police.

Troopers located her and conducted an interview.
