Detroit officer dies after injured in April shootout


Detroit police say one of their officers has died after sustaining head wounds in a shootout with a paroled armed robber and slaying suspect six months ago.


Police spokeswoman Kelly Miner says that Officer Patrick Hill died about 7:30 p.m. Saturday. She declined to release other details.


The fugitive died in the April 2 shooting that followed a car chase. Police say they were seeking parolee Matthew R. Joseph as a suspect in a March homicide.


Sgt. Jeffrey Pacholski was wounded and was treated at a hospital. He and Hill were members of a federal, state and local anti-crime task force.


State prison records show Joseph was paroled Oct. 2, 2012, after serving time for a 2006 robbery.
