A woman was caught on high-definition video pulling out a handgun from under her skirt and shooting a man in a car multiple times at a Detroit gas station after what appeared to be an argument.
The shooting occurred Sunday morning at about 4:30 a.m., local Fox affiliate WJBK Fox 2 News reported.
The woman was apprehended within two hours due to both the high-definition imagery and a new program with the Detroit Police Department called Project Green Light.
Project Green Light has installed high-definition cameras at various Detroit gas stations, liquor stores and McDonald’s restaurants which are monitored 24/7 at Detroit Police headquarters.
It sounds like the project works.
Fox 2 reported:
Thanks to Project Green Light, Detroit police have these high definition images from the shooting on Sunday, and say the images helped find the suspect very quickly. Detroit Police Chief James Craig says within two hours of getting the images to the media, they had the female suspect in custody.
The female suspect’s name has not been given, but Chief Craig says she was arrested while she was driving about a mile away from her home. Someone recognized her and called police.
“Huge success, exactly what we had hoped for,” Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody of Project Green Light said. “We’re going to see you, and we’re going to see you clearly.”
Project Green Light began in January and 11 businesses have already signed up for the program — which costs them about $5,000 in installation costs.
Each business taking part also posts large signs warning customers that they’re being monitored by the police.
Here’s the report via Fox 2. Raw footage of the incident follows.
