BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) - Bloomfield Hills Police have made two arrests in connection to the shooting of a homeowner.

It happened around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday night on Woodwind Drive near Lahser.

The Bloomfield Hills homeowner shot through his front door late Wednesday night and continues to recover. He is in stable condition at an undisclosed hospital. 

The Director of Public Safety David Hendrickson tells 7 Action News 57-year-old David Zacks was shot several times and was originally in critical condition. 

A gunman posed as a police officer at Zacks' front door. 

When Zacks would not open the door, the suspect fired shots through it.

The investigation now includes 10 investigators from other area police departments through MCAT, the Major Crimes Assistance Team. 

Police are looking into Zacks' business and personal connections and police say he is cooperating. 

The suspect fled on foot and then took off in a dark colored vehicle. Zacks' wife called police to explain what happened. (You can listen to the 911 call in the video player above)
