Officers Wounded
(wgvu) - CASCO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A woman has been found dead in a
southwestern Michigan home where a barricaded gunman accused of
shooting a state trooper surrendered to authorities.
Police tell the Kalamazoo Gazette they could not provide details
about the woman. Her body was discovered in the morning after a
nearly seven-hour standoff ended in Allegan County.
The trooper is in good condition after getting shot in the hand.
Authorities learned a young woman was being held against her will
at a Casco Township home.
Troopers were met by gunfire after entering the home.
Meanwhile, a Detroit police officer has been hospitalized after
getting shot in the elbow and hit with glass fragments. The officer
was wounded early in the day after exchanging gunfire with a
suspect, who fled on foot.
Detroit Police Chief Ella Bully-Cummings says the officer is
expected to recover.
