DETROIT, MI (WILX) - Police in Detroit say a suspect is in critical condition after a traffic stop escalated into shootout that injured three officers.

It all started just after 11:30 Saturday night.

That's when officers saw a vehicle speeding and driving the wrong way near an intersection.

When police stopped the vehicle, the driver put it in reverse and hit two police officers, pinning them between his car and the police cruiser.

The man then ran while firing on police and he hit one officer.

All three officers are in stable condition.

Police shot back, hitting him five times before he broke into a house in the area.

The suspect was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
