WARREN, Mich. – A wanted fugitive was shot and killed Thursday after exchanging gunshots with a police task force near Martin and Hoover roads in Warren.

The fugitive task force, comprised of U.S. Marshals and members from several other agencies, were tracking Frederick Ricardo Brown, 34, of Detroit, who was wanted for criminal sexual conduct. They were trying to bring him into custody on a warrant. 

Michigan State Police said Brown exited an apartment complex and walked across Martin Road. The officers identified themselves and attempted to take him into custody when gunshots were exchanged with Marshals. 

Brown was shot and later died from his injuries at a hospital. 

No officers or Marshals were injured. 

Evidence markers littered the pavement outside Original Buscemi's store at the corner of Martin and Hoover roads. 

Martin Road was shut down Thursday afternoon as officials investigated.
