The 7 Investigators have new information that could affect the fate of a Highland Park cop and his lieutenant who are both under investigation for alleged misconduct and abuse of power.

One was previously accused of assault with intent to murder.

This is now just coming to light and questions are swirling.

Did Curtis Wilson disclose this case when he was put on the streets here as a reserve police officer?

He was working as a bar bouncer and shot a man who almost died.

According to a 2013 Detroit police report, he was working security at the Club Celebrity on the west side, when he tossed out a guy, who then went to his car, got a gun and started shooting.

Wilson shot back telling police he used his black semi automatic .45 caliber handgun.

Sitting in a car nearby was Cornelius Gordon. He was hit in the back with two shots and was in critical condition at Sinai Grace Hospital.

Wilson and the other gunman, Deandre White, were both arrested and a warrant request was made for assault with intent to murder.

The prosecutor did not issue the charges - pending further investigation.

We are told today, Detroit police were unable to complete the case because witnesses at the bar would not cooperate.

This comes as Wilson and Highland Park lieutenant Jamille Edwards are under investigation for what they did in Dearborn last month.

Wilson was working as armed security at the Post Bar and drove a Highland Park police SUV, parking it halfway up the sidewalk.

That vehicle is assigned not to Wilson, but to Lt. Jamille Edwards.

Lt. Edwards is also jammed up in this Dearborn case.

Wilson called her and she drove over to try to talk their way out of the situation.

We tried to talk with Wilson today about both incidents. His mother took our number for him to call.

Highland Park Chief Chester Logan would not comment on the shoot out at the bar - he said on the advice of his attorney.

He did say his internal investigation was done and he’d have a decision on reserve Officer Wilson and Lt. Edwards by the end of the week.

We’ll bring you that, when it happens.
