Police were inside the home taking a statement when the accused shooter opened fire on the home again.

DETROIT – An Owosso woman drove to Detroit’s west side and fired multiple rounds into a home with two adults, a 15-year-old and an infant inside, police said.

Police Chief James White said a man inside the home in the 9200 block of Broadstreet Avenue was having domestic problems with the woman.

After the gunfire subsided, the people inside called 911 and officers arrived moments later, but the woman already had fled the area. Two officers entered the home to take down a report of the incident. Then the gunfire started again.

Police said two marked squad cars were sitting in front of the home when the suspect returned to the area and fired more rounds into the house. Everybody took cover, including officers, who did not return fire.

Supervisors patrolling the street apprehended the woman. Police said no one was injured.
