Highland Park officer expected to be OK after being shot in leg
Officer Ronald Dupuis shot during stolen car task force raid
HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. – A Highland Park police officer who was shot in the leg Monday evening during a raid is the same officer who was involved in a controversial arrest that was recorded earlier this year.
Officer Ronald Dupuis is expected to recover from the shooting, which happened in the 200 block of Candler Street in Highland Park.
Highland Park Mayor Deandre Windom said Dupuis, who is part of the ACTION Task Force, which targets car thieves, was conscious and in stable condition when he was rushed to Detroit Receiving Hospital.
The hospital was full of fellow officers who showed up to support Dupuis.
Local 4 has learned that two people were arrested in connection with the shooting, but police haven't said if one of them is the shooter or if they are still on the hunt for more suspects.
The officer is the second from the small police department to be shot in recent days.
Highland Park reserve officer Roderick Jones was shot and killed early Saturday morning while working off-duty as a security guard at a Detroit bar. Jones was shot multiple times after telling a man to leave the bar.
