Detroit Officer Glenn Doss was shot in the head in the line of duty Wednesday and is still in “very critical condition” at an area hospital, Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood said Friday.

Doss, 25, was answering a domestic violence call when a gunman shot him in the head.

Around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday a man called police and said he assaulted his wife and a woman called and said her father might have fired shots, reports the Detroit Free Press.

When officers arrived, they saw a 43-year-old man standing outside a home with a weapon. He then took a stance and fired shots at the police squad car, hitting Doss. Doss’ partner transported him to Detroit Receiving Hospital.

After a barricade situation, the gunman was captured.

Doss has been with the department for two years. His father, who is also named Glenn Doss, is also a Detroit police officer.
