Smile Black Cop shot dead, 5 others wounded in Detroit Gun Battle

Officer Brian Huff made the ultimate sacrifice early on the morning of May 3. Described as a "fun-loving, big guy," Huff was one of the five officers shot.

After Officer Huff was killed and four other officers were shot, with one more injured, Chief Warren Evans was not too pleased to find out that the shooter, Jason Gibson, should have been behind bars.

Chief Evans called Officer Huff "a gentile giant" [sic] and everyone that knew him loved him. This senseless murder devastates his family, including his wife and 10-year-old son, colleagues, and anyone that ever knew Officer Huff.
The officers were responding to a 3:30 a.m. 911 call from a neighbor reporting that shots had been fired inside a vacant unit of a duplex on Schoenherr near 8 Mile. This is where Officer Huff and four other officers were shot. The shooter, Gibson, was also injured in the fray.

The other shot officers are Kasper Harrison, Steven Schram, Joseph D’Angelo and John Dunlap. Officer Bryan Glover twisted his ankle while trying to pull Huff away from the house after the shooting, said Commander Steve Dolunt.
When the officers arrived at the scene, they were met with immediate gunfire, something northeast-side neighbors know all too well.

Sheila Brown, 47, who lives around the corner says the biggest problem in the area: vacant houses being taken over by drug dealers. Many neighbors said they've called the police in the past due to dealers dealing out of abandoned houses, but to no avail.

April Lewis, 46, says hearing gunfire at night has become commonplace in recent years.

“We hear it every night at 11 p.m.,” she said. “It’s not one or two shots. It’s six, seven, eight shots. We’re used to gunshots, and no one’s looking out anymore,” she said.
