DETROIT (AP) -- Authorities say a young man killed while trying to rob a retired Detroit police officer has been identified as a Grosse Pointe South High School senior who played on the school's varsity football team.
Wayne County Medical Examiner officials tell The Detroit News that 18-year-old Demere Hudson of Grosse Pointe Park was shot multiple times and died in the incident that happened about 9:20 p.m. Sunday in nearby Detroit.
Sgt. Eren Stephens says Hudson was armed when he approached the 65-year-old retired officer and demanded a personal item. The victim fired shots, killing the suspect.
The retired officer's name has not been released.
Superintendent C. Suzanne Klein said in a statement Thursday that "the Grosse Pointe school community was saddened by the death."
Wayne County prosecutors are reviewing the case.
