DETROIT -

 It was a year ago this week that the unthinkable happened at the Detroit Police Department’s Northwest District.

A gunman entered the station and opened fire. Four officers were wounded before police shot and killed the suspect.

On Friday, members of the 6th and 8th precincts who were there on Jan. 23, 2011, gathered to remember the day.

Officer David Anderson, Commander Brian Davis and sergeants Ray Saati and Carrie Schulz were hurt in the shooting. None of their injuries were life-threatening.

The suspect, 38-year-old Lamar Moore was killed.

Moore was accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl about 10 days before the shooting.

The officers spoke about the work ethic of Detroit police officers and their heroism.
