Wife of Detroit Police Officer Loren Courts shares emotional goodbye

In a heartfelt social media post, the widow of slain Detroit Police Officer Loren Courts said early Thursday that “yesterday my husband, my children’s father was killed in the line of duty for Detroit police department,” calling him their Batman.

Courts, who officials praised and mourned as a real-life hero, was gunned down Wednesday evening while on the job near Joy Road and Marlowe Street, was pronounced dead at Sinai-Grace Hospital.

“We lost a hero today,” Detroit Police Chief James White said, adding the police department and the city “is grieving.” He also decried gun violence in the city and nationwide.

Courts’ name was not released by authorities, but by Thursday morning it was circulating on social media, including in a Facebook post by Wayne County Executive Warren Evans, and statements from others.
