Listen to the full interview.

Ann Arbor Police Chief Michael Cox says that despite the recent shooting at Briarwood Mall in Ann Arbor, the year-long pandemic and the response to the verdict in the trial of the death of George Floyd, he is still trying, ” everyone to show “day and hope he” can help the community.

Ann Arbor Police are still investigating last week’s shooting in Ann Arbor’s Briarwood Mall.

The shooting took place around 3 p.m. on Friday, April 16, and resulted in a person being rushed to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No suspects were arrested.

Ann Arbor Police Chief Michael Cox says this is not an active shooting situation and it appears to be an isolated incident.

“More or less, probably a casual crime that just happened in that particular mall on that particular day.”

Police have indicated that the alleged shooter and the victim appear to have known each other, but the motive for the crime remains unclear.
