A murder suspect in Detroit, Michigan, had to turn himself in to authorities twice because officers were 'too busy' to arrest him the first time.
The 36-year-old man walked into a fire station at 3.20am Saturday and told firefighters that he had opened fire at a party earlier in the evening -- killing two men and wounding two others.
When firefighters called police, they were told that there was no one available to arrest the man because all officers were busy on 'high priority' calls.
The suspect got tired of waiting for squad cars to show up and collect him, so he left the fire station and walked to a nearby police precinct, where he turned himself in a second time.
This time he was arrested and taken into custody.
The embarrassing news is the latest blow for the Detroit Police Department, which has been savaged by budget cuts.
