Police seize weapons, body armor, ammunition from Detroit house
Detroit police seized five guns, body armor and over 200 rounds of ammunition from a house on the east side of the city after two men fired shots in the neighborhood.
At around 6:23 p.m. on Friday, a gunshot seeker, a system of sensors, algorithms and artificial intelligence that warns police of gunfire, notified officers in a house on the 11200 block of Wayburn.
When officers arrived, two men ran into the house with handguns, police said, and several used cases were found on the side of the house.
The two men, 26 and 51, came out of the house minutes later and were arrested by police. The 26-year-old man was issued a ticket to unload a firearm in the city area and hold a gun while drunk and then released, police said. Police also confiscated his gun, a silver and black Taurus G2 pistol, and his CPL license.
Police said they learned the 51-year-old man is currently on $ 5,000 personal bail after being arrested on Feb.17 for possession of a stolen firearm. He was detained and taken to the Detroit Detention Center for an owned criminal, officials said.
With a search warrant, the police seized a pistol, a rifle, two shotguns, body armor, two magazines and more than 200 rounds of ammunition from the house.
