(WXYZ) — Detroit Police Chief James Craig is addressing several incidents where officers were shot at.
Craig says there have been 4 incidents in less than a week, with 6 total since the beginning of the year. Craig says in these incidents officers have either had a weapon pointed at them, or were actually fired upon.
The latest incident happened just over the weekend.
Craig says he's "never seen a week like the last week" with four incidents targeting officers. He says anti-police rhetoric in the wake of the George Floyd protests and the pandemic are playing a role in the increase of violent incidents.
