DETROIT, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- A Michigan State Police trooper was seriously wounded Monday in a Detroit shootout that followed a traffic stop, a police spokeswoman said.

Two men were arrested and two other suspects were being sought, The Detroit News reported.

Capt. Monica Yesh of the Metro South Post said the trooper suffered a leg wound and was reported in serious condition. His name was not released but he was described as a 12-year veteran of the state police.

Lt. Mike Shaw of the Metro North Post said officers stopped a car about 3:50 a.m. that matched the description of a vehicle used in a series of armed robberies.
