Flint Police Chief 'Two Guns' Johnson Takes Out Suspect In Gun Battle

Flint Police Chief Tim "Two Guns" Johnson shot a suspect in a running gun battle through the streets of Genesee County.

Flint, MI – Flint Police Chief Tim “Two Guns” Johnson shot a suspect involved in a shootout on Wednesday afternoon.

The incident began shortly before 4 p.m. on Sept. 18 when a gunfight was reported at the Ten Eleven Party Store located off Lippincott Boulevard and Wood Lane, MLive reported.

Burton Police Chief Mike Odette said officers from his department responded to the call but when they arrived, everybody was gone.

Police recovered multiple shell casings from the parking lot of the party store, MLive reported.

Flint Police Detective Sergeant Tyrone Booth said that Flint police officers were in the area of Lynn Street and Wood Lane a short while later when another gun battle erupted.

"Police chief was in the area, gunshots being fired,” he told reporters. “He found two subjects that were firing weapons, gave chase, and it ended in an officer-involved shooting.”

“They heard shots fired and actually witnessed shots being fired between individuals,” Det. Sgt. Booth said. “They did intervene and we have... two suspects in custody, one of the two receiving treatment at Hurley Medical Center right now for a gunshot wound.”

He said that Chief Johnson was on duty when the gunfight occurred and he fired the shot that struck a suspect, MLive reported.

Det. Sgt. Booth refused to comment on whether the chief, whose nickname is “Two Guns” because he wears two pistols on his gun belt, also fired at the second suspect.

“We can’t get into details in terms of the investigation and details in terms of what occurred,” Det. Sgt. Booth said. “Those things will be rolled out at a later time.”

Police have not released any information on the condition of the wounded suspect, according to MLive.

Chief Johnson put himself on desk duty while the Michigan State Police and the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office investigated the officer-involved shooting.

Man you can't make this shit up! They respond to a call about a gun battle, but it was all over by the time they arrived (nothing but spent shell casings). Then, before they have a chance to leave, another gunfight breaks out! No wonder he wears two guns!

Now that's the first time I've seen a Chief officer wear birds rather than stars on his collor or shoulders. I live on the coast of California and the Chiefs here all wear four stars. Only one department that I know of has an assistant Chief, Salinas CA. I retired from federal LE and the only 4 star we had was the buerue's commisioner back in D.C. Some of the departments I am referring to have less than 10 persons in the department including support.

When the man coming for you has a nickname that badass; you better find religion. That’s one more body bag the city has to buy. Money well spent. That Chief is a true leader.
