MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI -- Two Michigan State Police Troopers shot and killed a man after he drew a firearm on them.    

Michigan State Police say the incident happened about 3 p.m. Monday, April 3, at 2002 Sugaridge Drive in Muskegon County’s Laketon Township.

A preliminary investigation revealed the two troopers were dispatched to a breaking and entering.   When they arrived they observed and confronted a single male suspect as he exited the home. The suspect drew a firearm and both troopers drew and fired their firearm striking and killing the suspect, police said.

The involved troopers were not injured. Both have been placed on paid administrative leave.



GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids police say a man was shot and killed by an officer during a traffic stop Monday morning.

It took place near the intersection of Griggs and Nelson when an officer conducted a traffic stop. Police say the driver exited the vehicle and tried to run away.

After a short chase, a “lengthy struggle ensued” between the officer and the suspect. That’s when the officer shot at the man, killing him.

Grand Rapids police say the officer was wearing a body camera. It fell off during the struggle, but GRPD says the camera was still on the scene and activated and will be reviewed.

Michigan State Police will take over the investigation, which is standard practice in cases like this.
