DETROIT – A vigil is taking place this evening to honor fallen Detroit officer Rasheen McClain at the Detroit Police Department’s 12th Precinct.

McClain was killed Wednesday night when a gunman opened fire on him and three other officers.

An investigation into the shooter’s history has left Police Chief James Craig angry over the department’s failings.

“If we had did a follow-up, and taken him into custody, we wouldn’t be talking about our hero who is no longer with us," Craig said.
