Suspect wounded in Muskegon officer-involved shooting

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — At least two Muskegon officers are on administrative leave after a home invasion call ended in gunfire.

The incident happened around 1:30 a.m. Sunday at a home in the 1500 block of Terrace Street in Muskegon.

The Muskegon Police Department says its officers were responding to a report of an active home invasion when they confronted a 32-year-old Muskegon man. Police say the suspect refused to follow officers’ commands, pulled out a gun and fired at the officers. 

Police returned fire and the suspect ran. The police department says the man was caught by officers nearby.

The suspect was taken to Hackley Hospital where he was treated for gunshot wounds to his upper leg, Muskegon police say. He has since been transferred to the Muskegon County jail.

The wounded suspect and a 31-year-old Muskegon Heights are facing charges in the case. Police are not releasing their names until they're arraigned.

Following standard protocol, the officers involved in the shooting are on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.
