Detroit Police are asking for help locating a suspect who’s accused of targeting his ex-girlfriend and shooting up her home. Michael Hopkins is a repeat offender and police say he came close to killing a woman and two young children after losing his cool.
Police say the 44-year-old went on a violent rampage, firing 16 shots into his ex-girlfriend’s home in the 16000 block of Rosemont. The shooting happened on the early morning of April 12, 2018, around 6:45.
Police say Hopkins banged and yelled at the front door, demanding to be let in.
When the ex-girlfriend did not comply police say Hopkins pulled out a handgun and fired into the door. Fortunately, no one hurt.
The violence regarding this case began even earlier this year when Hopkins made a threatening phone call to his ex-girlfriend, whom he shares a child with and has known for at least 10 years.
“Back on February 21, while Mr. Hopkins was incarcerated on a separate matter, he called our victim and said, ‘I know where you are. I know what you’re doing,’ and proceeded to list five different dates and times of where she was and what she was doing,” says Detroit Police Lt. Ian Severy.
A few days later, the victim checked into a hotel — and police say Hopkins showed up.
“She drives off; Hopkins proceeds to call her several times – up to 40 times that evening – and says, ‘I told you I know exactly where you are and what you’re doing. I paid a team to follow you,'” Lt. Severy says.
The victim filed a report and that’s what investigators say probably led to the shooting in April. Hopkins hasn’t turned himself in and is still wanted right now by police.
He’s wanted on a number of charges, including the discharge of a firearm and aggravated stalking. Police believe he’s still in the metro area, in Detroit, possibly Southfield or Pontiac. Police also have information that leads them to believe he’s dating multiple women in the area.
