Police officer collapses after responding to crime scene on Detroit's east side

DETROIT – A police officer collapsed after responding to the report of a shooting and stabbing Wednesday evening on Detroit's east side.

Investigators said a man walked into the Big Daddy Market liquor store after being shot in the area of Oakland Avenue and Owen Street, near I-75 and Holbrook Avenue. 

It's alleged the man had a horse tranquilizer with him that may have spilled inside of the store and hazmat crews were called to clean up the spill. 

During the investigation a female officer collapsed, it's unclear if she came in contact with the tranquilizer. 

The officer and the victim were both being treated at Detroit Receiving Hospital. 

A possible suspect description in the shooting incident has not yet been released.
