2nd suspect arrested in Family Dollar shootout

Police say the second suspect involved in the shootout at Family Dollar on Detroit's west side has been taken into custody.

Another suspect was killed and a 27-year-old security guard is in critical condition from the attempted robbery and subsequent shootout that occurred around 7:45 p.m. Monday.

Police say the 22-year-old taken into custody went to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the body. The suspect had fled the scene Monday night in a burgundy Nissan Sentra.

"This is a huge tragedy," said Tiffany Stewart, commander of Detroit's 6th Precinct, on Monday night. "We are still investigating and still trying to figure out precisely what happened – who shot first and things of that nature."
