Police Officer Myron Jarrett was struck and killed at approximately 10:30 pm by a hit-and-run driver while assisting other officers during a traffic stop near the intersection of Puritan Avenue and Monica Street.

Officer Jarrett was re-entering his patrol car as he and his partner were preparing to leave the scene. A van traveling at a high rate of speed struck Officer Jarrett, his patrol car, and several other vehicles before stopping a short distance away. The male driver and a female passenger then both fled on foot. The driver was arrested at a bus stop several hours later.

The other officer in the patrol car suffered minor injuries.

Officer Jarrett had served with the Detroit Police Department and was assigned to the 12th Precinct. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, and two sons.
