Jason Anthony Makowski

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.

Mako, it was a pleasure to have worked with you and to have served beside you, especially being able to call you my friend. You made every day a little brighter, you made every police situation safer and you never hid from danger . Thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice. You were not just a hero on that day, you were a hero every day. Your legacy lives on, and you will never be forgotten.....
