Andre Hardaway charged with shooting two Michigan State Police troopers in a Detroit home

A 55-year-old man has been charged with shooting two Michigan State Police troopers inside a home in Detroit.

Detroit native Andre Hardaway was charged Wednesday with assault with intent to murder and firearms offenses, according to the Wayne County District Attorney’s Office.

When the troopers were shot on Friday, members of a state police emergency support team and Detroit police officers were present in the home.

Hardaway was also shot and wounded before barricading himself inside the residence. He surrendered more than three hours later, as indicated by the prosecution. All were treated in hospitals.

The prosecutor’s office pointed out that the defendant committed the alleged acts while law enforcement officers were carrying out their duties lawfully.

Wayne County District Attorney Kym Worthy said “this is yet another clear example that highlights the dangerousness and uncertainty of their work.”

According to Detroit Police Chief James White, the soldiers were assisting a Detroit police team that is pursuing the fugitives.

Hardaway was remanded in custody Wednesday on $850,000 bond, and a probable cause conference is scheduled for March 22, followed by a preliminary hearing on March 29.
