DETROIT (WXYZ) - The man who tried to turn himself in to police Saturday for a quadruple shooting, but was told no cops were available, was charged Tuesday.
Prosecutor Kim L. Worthy charged Adris D. McCullogh in connection with a shooting that left two men dead in Detroit on September 1.
The incident happened on the 16200 block of Inverness during an altercation, according to a news release.
This weekend, Adris reportedly went to a fire station and confessed to the crime, but when firefighters called the police, they were told no units were available.
Firefighters say they kept the man at the fire station for almost four hours waiting for a police patrol car to pick him up. Eventually they put the suspect in a taxi and sent him to the 10th Precinct where he was taken into custody.
Detroit firefighters, with the exception of arson investigators, do not have policing powers, and therefore don't have the authority to make arrests.
In a news release about the incident, Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee said, "Every effort to ensure that this person was taken into police custody should have occurred. Therefore an administrative investigation will be conducted to determine if this police run was handled appropriately and to ascertain if there were any other patrol resources which should have been made available to respond to the Detroit Fire Engine Quarters.”
