HARPER WOODS, Mich. (WXYZ) — Six public safety workers in Harper Woods have been placed on administrative leave after a woman died in police custody last week.
Priscilla Slater, 38, was found unresponsive in a holding cell on Wednesday, a day after she was arrested in connection to a shooting.
Police said they also arrested 27-year-old Lewis Nichols for the shooting.
On Friday, there was a protest held outside the police department. Demonstrators and the mayor's wife of Harper Woods nearly came to blows after she appeared to rip up a protester's sign taking a stand against police.
According to the city, four civilian aides and two supervisors have been placed on leave while the investigation into her death continues.
