DETROIT (AP) — A 26-year-old man has been charged with buying a firearm that police say a 19-year-old later used to fatally shoot a Detroit police officer.
U.S. Attorney Dawn Ison said Sunday the Detroit man is charged with making a false statement in the acquisition of the firearm. He appeared in federal court and is being held until a detention hearing on Tuesday.
Another officer fatally shot the alleged gunman, who was identified by police as Ehmani Davis.
It was unclear Sunday if the man charged with giving Davis the gun has a defense attorney to comment on his behalf.
