REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) Police in suburban Detroit say an officer fatally shot a carjacker who had wounded people during a robbery spree.

The Detroit News reports that police in the Wayne County's Redford Township say officers were investigating a series of carjackings when they spotted the armed suspect Wednesday.

Police say the carjacker fled through the yards in the neighborhood, and several officers from other communities assisted the search for him.

The department says an officer from another agency saw the running carjacker and shot him.

Police say they aren't immediately identifying the dead suspect. They say the two people he shot sustained non-life threatening injuries.
