Mich. trooper shoots, wounds man during arrest attempt
Hastings – Authorities say a Michigan State Police trooper has shot and wounded a man who refused to drop what turned out to be an airsoft gun.
Police say the 36-year-old was being sought on felony warrants and authorities got word he was in a church parking lot Monday evening in the Hastings area. Police tried to block the man from driving away and arrest him.
Police say the man got out of a vehicle, showed what appeared to be a handgun and refused to drop the weapon, so a trooper shot him.
The man was taken to a hospital with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say the weapon was a realistic-looking pistol that shoots nonlethal pellets. The shooting is under investigation.
