DETROIT (WKZO) -- A mentally-ill man is hospitalized after being shot by an off-duty police officer outside a Detroit church.

The man and officer got into a fight, with the officer falling to the ground after being hit in the knee. At that point, the suspect allegedly swung an ax at the officer, who fired a shot.

Other Detroit police officers also showed up at the same time and also opened fire on the suspect, who is in critical condition.
