Corporal Jason Makowski was shot and killed after responding to a call involving a man walking around with a gun and arguing with garbage workers, near the intersection of Joy and Beech Daly Roads.

When responding officers arrived, the suspect opened fire on them as he retreated to his home, and continued firing at officers from inside the home. Corporal Makowski was struck once in the face as he took cover behind a neighbor's home. The shooter continued firing towards Corporal Makowski's position, preventing officers from removing him from the location. The shooter was finally shot and killed by an officer armed with a rifle.

Corporal Makowski was transported to a local hospital and then flown to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, where he succumbed to his wound early the following morning.

Corporal Makowski had served with the Dearborn Heights Police Department for 11 years. He is survived by his son.

Ran into someone that knew you too the other day and have thought of you ever since. We reflected on some of the funny things you used to say and do. Can't go into a starbucks without thinking of you. I hope that Cameron has healed and the rest of your family as well. I know they will never forget, as none of us will either. Still remember that night and where we all were....
Rest in Peace Jason. Bless your family.
