Detroit police have released surveillance video of a man wanted in a shootout that left an off-duty officer wounded and another suspect dead.

Police want to talk to that man - who is seen on the phone in the video.

Investigators say you can see him reaching down, taking the guns from the dead suspect and the off-duty officer.

It all exploded in the parking lot of a party store on Gratiot near Chene Sunday night.

The officer had just left work and was wearing street clothes when a gunman tried to rob him.

The 27-year-old officer was injured in the shootout and is expected to recover.

The gunman was killed.
