Several officers had surrounded the home, which was known to be a drug house, in response to the initial 911 call. When Officer Huff, and the other officers who were positioned in the front of the home, made entry, they were immediately met with gunfire.
Officer Huff was fatally wounded and four other officers suffered non-life threatening wounds. The suspect was also shot and wounded by the return gunfire.
Officer Huff was 42 years old and had served with the Detroit Police Department for 12 years and was assigned to the Eastern District. He is survived by his wife and 10-year-old son.
