LANIA ROCHA
On June 9 at approximately 1:50 p.m. Metro Police Authority officers responded to a residence in the 7000 block of Miller Rd., in Swartz Creek, for a welfare check on a 91-year-old male and a possible domestic violence situation. Central dispatch advised that caller said her 61-year-old son was at the residence alone with her husband and he can be violent. As officers responded, the female caller advised that her son was now at the Kroger, across the street from her residence, following her in his vehicle. Metro officers, with the assistance of a Clayton Township officer, located the subject in the Kroger parking lot. The subject fled from the officers and a short vehicular chase ensued. The subject was stopped on Bellwood Drive in Flint Township. The subject was taken into custody after allegedly attempting to pull a gun on the arresting officer. Officers then checked on the elderly male at the Miller Road residence and found him deceased with multiple gunshot wounds. The scene was processed by the Michigan State Police Crime Lab and the suspect was lodged in the Genesee County Jail pending further investigation and review by the Prosecutor’s Office.
