Officer Scott Stewart was shot and killed as he placed a suspect under arrest for illegally possessing a handgun.

Officer Stewart and his partner were called to the 11200 block of Corbette in the report there was a group of men gambling on the sidewalk. When they arrived, Officer Stewart discovered one man was carrying a concealed handgun. As Officer Stewart was cuffing the suspect, another man approached Officer Stewart from behind and fired one shot at his head. Officer Stewart was rushed to St. John Hospital where he died several hours later from his wound.

The suspect fled the scene but turned himself in the following day. The man was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Officer Stewart was assigned to the 9th Precinct and had been employed with the Detroit Police Department for five years. He is survived by his fiancee, also a Detroit Police Officer, parents, and two sisters.
