Charges are expected to be announced in the fatal shooting of one Detroit police officer and the wounding of another as they investigated a home invasion complaint.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says a decision is expected Tuesday in the Nov. 20 slaying of Officer Rasheen McClain on the city's west side.

Officer Phillippe Batoum-Bisse was shot in the leg.

Authorities say shots were fired at McClain, Batoum-Bisse and two other officers as they were searching the house.

A 28-year-old man was shot in the arm by other officers as he fled the home and was arrested a block away.

Police Chief James Craig has said that the suspect may be connected to several earlier shootings, including the fatal shooting of a 31-year-old man on Detroit's east side.
