On Monday morning a task force from Detroit was in Harrison Township trying to arrest Clint Washington Jr. when it all happened on Nicolle Drive, not far from Metro Parkway and I-94. 

Multiple agencies from Detroit and Macomb County were at the scene. Crime scene tape blocked off several parts of the complex.  

"It was around 9:50 p.m. and I heard a noise that was like bang, bang," said Federaca Ptraarca. 

The shots echoed throughout the complex, scaring several neighbors including Tim Schalm.

"We come out here and we were going to take the dog for a walk, and I was like what the heck is going on, where all of these cop cars are right in front of here," said Schalm.
