You’d think that walking into a fire station and confessing to murder would be a good way to get arrested, but one Detroit man was mistaken.
The unnamed man walked into a fire station two hours after shooting four people (two of whom died) and confessed to his actions. The fire fighters called the Detroit Police Department – only to be told that no officers were available.
The suspect then left the fire station and walked across town to the police station where he confessed again – only this time he was arrested.
Police Chief Ray Godbee says that something went wrong (duh):
Every effort to ensure that this person was taken into police custody should have occurred. Therefore an administrative investigation will be conducted to determine if this police run was handled appropriately and to ascertain if there were any other patrol resources which should have been made available to respond to the Detroit Fire Engine Quarters.
On the other hand, the additional walk gave him some extra time to think about what he had done.
