Detroit Cop on ATF Task Force Dies From Wounds Suffered in April Shootout

By Allan Lengel
Deadline Detroit

DETROIT — Detroit cop Patrick Hill — part of a federal task force– who was critically wounded in a shootout with a murder suspect in early April on the city’s west side, died Saturday, a source tells Deadline Detroit.

Hill got into a shootout while trying to arrest a murder suspect. The suspect was killed by law enforcement. Another officer was wounded during the shootout, but was treated and released from the hospital within 24 hours of the shooting.

Details about his death were sketchy.

Originally, back in April, it was reported that Hill was shot in the head multiple times. Reports later came out that he may have been hit by shrapnel or metal fragments, possibly from a car that was hit by bullets.

Hill was a highly respected cop on the task force.

DETROIT — Detroit cop Patrick Hill — part of an ATF violent crime  task force — was critically wounded in a shootout with a murder suspect about four weeks ago on Detroit’s west side.

On Saturday night, while he remained hospitalized in critical condition, suffering from head wounds, his fellow officers and members of the community gathered at the VFW hall in Lincoln Park to raise money for Hill and his family. He and his wife have four children, ages 3 to 16.

Detroit Police Sgt. Michael DiCicco, a close friend of Hill’s who played on a traveling softball team with him, spearheaded the fundraiser on Saturday, and said about 1,000 people bought $20 tickets for the event. People also donated money and bought raffle tickets for donated prizes.

“It was a good haul,” DiCicco said, declining to disclose the total amount of money raised.

He said the money will help the family. The wife, who is a phsycian’s assistant at St. Joseph’s Hospital, has taken an unpaid leave to help take care of her husband. DiCicco said she was on hand Saturday night along with other family members.

“She was floored,” he said. “It was overwhelming for her to see all those people come out to support her husband.
