A man was arrested last week in Detroit for shooting two police officers on his property. Alexander Plummer, a 19-year-old, was attempting to protect his mother’s home from what he thought were two burglars.
“Several calls” were made to police from inside the Plummer house, which suggests the fear of a robbery was drawn out over an extended period of time. When the police arrived at the Plummer house and approached the home, prosecutors claimed the officers announced their presence and were fired upon while they had their flashlights equipped.
Plummer looked remorseful at his arraignment hearing as the prosecutors analyzed the circumstances surrounding his case. A Wayne County judge denied the prosecutor, Kym Worthy, her requests of placing the young man on house arrest with a high bond for bail.
Alexander Plummer was set with a $25,000 bond and is due back for a probable cause hearing on April 26.
