Suspect in shooting of off-duty Inglewood officer arrested in Michigan
The man suspected of shooting an off-duty Inglewood Police officer in the unincorporated Lennox area was arrested Thursday in Flint, Michigan.
Marquis Wilkerson, 27, was located about 5:30 p.m. Thursday in a residence just outside of Detroit and arrested without incident, according to Deputy David Yoo of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
The shooting was reported about 10:10 a.m. on March 31 in the 10900 block of Osage Avenue, near Prairie Avenue and the Inglewood city limit.
Investigators learned the victim was at the scene to assist a family member “in possibly retrieving property” when he was allegedly confronted by Wilkerson, who produced a gun and shot him.
The officer was taken by ambulance to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center with gunshot wounds to his arm and leg, and was listed in stable condition the night of the shooting.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is seeking to have the suspect extradited to California, Yoo said.
