Detroit— Police today identified the gunman who walked into a police precinct Sunday afternoon and opened fire with a shotgun, injuring four officers before return gunfire took his life. Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee identified the man as 38-year-old Lamar Moore of Detroit. Moore entered the 6th Precinct on the city's northwest side about 4:30 p.m. and shot Cmdr. Brian Davis, in charge of the precinct, Officer David Anderson, Sgt. Ray Saati and Sgt. Carrie Schulz.
Davis and Anderson are in stable condition at Sinai-Grace Hospital, Godbee said today. Saati and Schulz have been released from the hospital. All are expected to recover, Godbee said.
Davis was shot in the hand and side and underwent surgery Sunday evening. Anderson was struck in the head but was alert and talking and moving his limbs on Sunday.
Saati was also struck, as was Schulz . Schulz was hit in the chest but was wearing a bulletproof vest.
"It was a rough weekend for all of us but we're going to stand tall," Godbee said today at a morning press conference at police headquarters, where he also addressed the city's alleged serial rape case. "We're not gong to give up. We're not discouraged in the least."
Godbee said Moore has a believed relative due in court today to be sentenced for a double homicide.
Venson Robert Hibbit is to be sentenced today on two counts of second-degree murder, for being a felon in possession of firearm and one count of assault with intent to murder. The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office couldn't confirm if the two were related.
Police say Hibbit, 27, killed two people at a mechanic's shop because he was upset about a car he purchased there.
Godbee also said Mayor Dave Bing and Deputy Mayor Saul Green have promised whatever resources police need to make the precincts safer. Goodbee declined to say what changes would be made for security reasons.
The 6th precinct, considered a crime scene, is temporarily shut down, police said Sunday. Residents needing to file police reports can go to the 10th and 12th precincts or call (313) 596-2200.
The Detroit City Council is expected to discuss the issue during its Public Health and Safety Committee session today. Green was scheduled to attend the session to discuss issues with EMS, and the federal monitor was also set to address the group, Councilman Gary Brown said.
