DETROIT (WJBK) - Detroit police have arrested a man suspected of shooting two police officers Wednesday night. The suspect, Raymond Durham, was arrested in the area of Michigan and Vinewood at 11 p.m.

The 60-year-old is suspected of shooting two officers at 8:15 p.m. in the area of Ash and Tillmon on the city's west side. The officers were conducting a narcotics investigation when they approached a man who was "acting fidgety," Police Chief James Craig said. The man pulled out a gun and fired before the officers returned fire, Craig said.

One officer was shot in the neck but is expected to recover. The second officer was hit twice in the upper torso and was saved by a protective vest. He was also shot in the ankle, but the wound is not considered life threatening, Craig said.

A gun was recovered during Durham's arrest. Durham also had been shot in the leg and was taken to the hospital. Chief Craig says he believes that injury was sustained during the shootout with officers.

Authorities haven't yet named the officers.
