Police Shooting
(2008-04-23)
(wgvu) - PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - The man accused of shooting the Capac
(KAY'-pak) police chief and a St. Clair County sheriff's deputy has
been released from a hospital and transferred to the county jail.
The Detroit Free Press and the Times Herald of Port Huron say
50-year-old Donald Burke is expected to be arraigned Thursday on
two counts of assault with intent to commit murder.
Burke is charged in the April 16 shootings of Police Chief
Raymond Hawks and Deputy Tim O'Boyle. He had been hospitalized
since complaining of chest pains shortly after his arrest the next
morning.
Hawks, who was shot while trying to arrest Burke on suspicion of
drunken driving, remains in serious condition at Port Huron
Hospital. O'Boyle was treated and released the day of the shooting.
