Wednesday night's home invasion occurred at the same house.

The suspect is on parole after serving eight years in prison, Craig said. His first arrest occurred in 2009 when he was 14 years old, for alleged home invasion, the chief said.

McClain was one of the first two officers to arrive at the house, where a person armed with a long gun was reportedly inside. After backup arrived, four officers, including McClain, went in to look for the suspect, Craig said.

After clearing the upper level and the main level, which were dark, the four officers went down a staircase into the basement, which was lit. McClain's body camera showed the officer repeatedly announcing they were the police and ordering the suspect to show his hands, Craig said.

"Looking at the body camera, I could see that the suspect — as they got halfway down the staircase, in a very closed environment, the suspect came out from the left," Craig said. "He fired quickly twice, striking both officers."

The other two officers pulled back after the shooting, and the suspect ran up the stairs and was shot as he was leaving the house, Craig said.

"He was very target specific," the police chief said of the suspect. "He knew what he had planned to do."

McClain leaves behind a wife of 10 years and two step-children, Craig said. He said that many officers went to the hospital to show support for the shot officers Wednesday night, and called it a "dark day" for police.

"This is certainly a heartbreaking day for the brave men and women of the Detroit Police Department," Craig said. He said McClain "made the ultimate sacrifice."
