One officer was hit in the face.
The 19-year-old opened fired on two officers with a shotgun "fearing for the safety" of his mother and brother, Detroit police Chief James Craig said at a media briefing on Monday.
Craig said the officers were responding to a 911 call about a burglary at about 11:45 p.m. Sunday.
There was a series of three or four calls about a burglary, the chief said, but in the last call the caller said there were flashlights outside the home. The other officer, who was hit in the face by two shell pellets, is in critical, but stable condition and is expected to recover.
They were outside when they were fired upon.
"Appears that this is an unfortunate situation", Craig said.

Counteractions would occur "in such a merciless manner as not to allow the aggressors to survive", the army statement said. Kim Jong Un didn't speak before North Korean television ended the live broadcast.
Craig said the teen who fired the shot is remorseful for what happened and just wants to make sure the officers will be okay.
Both officers were in full uniform when they went to the home.
"Right after the shot, he called 911", Redd said.
According to police, one officer was hit in the face by two shotgun shell pellets and the other was injured by flying glass. He's been with the department for two years. "We knew then that a cop must have been shot", she said. On March 15, two officers were injured on the city's west side during a shootout.
Hayes, whose 27-year-old-son is on the police force, said the area is normally quiet.
