Suspect in multiple homicides is captured in Wayne

A suspect in several homicides was arrested in Wayne by Michigan State Police last Saturday, according to police reports.

The 34-year-old suspect was seen in Inkster on Friday at 7:15 p.m., according to police reports when troopers attempted a traffic stop of the suspect as he was driving a 2017 Chrysler 200. The individual believed to be connected to several homicides failed to stop when ordered to pull over by troopers. That failure escalated into a vehicle pursuit, according to reports, and eventually the suspect ran from his vehicle prompting a foot chase.

The Michigan State Police K-9 unit were called and “officer Koma” was used to track the suspect who was eventually located hiding under a lawn chair at an address near Howe Road and Annapolis Street in the City of Wayne.

The suspect was immediately taken into custody, according to police reports.

“We will continue to work with county and local police to focus on these dangerous criminals in order to improve the quality of life in the city of Inkster,” “stated Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw.
