U.S. Officers Shoot Canadian Man on Ambassador Bridge
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement that the man stopped his car around 3 a.m. near a booth on the Ambassador Bridge, which goes between Detroit and the Canadian city of Windsor.
As he walked toward them, the officers ordered him to drop the weapon, the statement said. Then he pointed the gun in their direction, and they opened fire.
Authorities have not released the identity of the man, who they described as a Canadian citizen. He was treated for his injuries and then taken into custody, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Kris Grogan said.
Citing Windsor police, CNN partner CTV said the man has had previous encounters with Canadian law enforcement and confronted police officers minutes before the shooting on the bridge.
