BROOKFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WWJ/AP) – A suspect has been fatally shot by a central Michigan sheriff’s deputy, in response to police, after photographs have been exchanged following a chase.
State Police Lt. Lisa Risch says the Eaton County deputy suffered minor accidents within the confrontation that occurred Tuesday afternoon in a rural space of Brookfield Township, about 20 miles southwest of Lansing.
Police stated deputies have been making an attempt to serve a felony arrest warrant when the suspect fled in a car and “deliberately rammed” two police automobiles a brief distance away. That’s when the police say the deputy and the suspect fired at one another.
The suspect was pronounced lifeless on the scene. Police didn’t instantly launch extra details about the one that died or the arrest warrant. Nobody else was contained in the fleeing car.
The deputy was injured within the crash and brought to an area hospital.
An investigation is ongoing. Anybody with details about the incident is requested to name the MSP First District Particular Investigation Part at 517-636-0703.
