Suspected intruder shot, killed while breaking into Harrison Twp
A suspected intruder was shot and killed while allegedly breaking into a Harrison Township apartment complex early Monday afternoon, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident happened about 12:35 p.m. at Harrison Woods Condominiums on Harrison Woods Lane, in the area of Northpointe Parkway and Metropolitan Parkway.
“It was basically a home invasion, where the occupants were home and shot the individual who was coming in,” said Sheriff Anthony Wickersham.
According to a news release, sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the complex for a home invasion in progress. While deputies were on their way, dispatch notified them residents reported hearing gunshots.
Upon their arrival, deputies found a 26-year-old Redford Township man dead inside of the residence, said sheriff’s Sgt. David Crabtree.
“It was determined that the decedent forced his way into the home and was subsequently shot by one of the occupants,” Crabtree said in the release.
The occupants — a Harrison Township woman and a man from Inkster, both 27 — were taken to the sheriff’s office in Mount Clemens. They have since been released.
Police believe the subjects knew each other.
As of 6 p.m., investigators remained on the scene conducting their investigation.
Wickersham said the apartment occupants were being cooperative with the deputies.
“We’ll be conferring with the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office and they will be the ones who will make the determination as to whether this was a justifiable homicide,” the sheriff said.
There is no reason for the residents of Harrison Township to be alarmed, Wickersham added.
The suspect’s name was not released Monday night.
Monday’s incident marked the fourth fatal shooting this month in Macomb County.

MOSS POINT, Miss. (WXXV) — Police are investigating after a homeowner shot and killed an armed intruder Sunday evening in Moss Point.
Police say they received a call at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24, reporting, “shots fired” in the Mill Avenue area of East Moss Point.
Officers responded to the 911 calls and after arriving, found a man laying in the roadway. The male victim appeared to have been shot was pronounced dead on scene.

The two men approached the door of their target residence and encountered the homeowner.
At least one of the two men fired a gun multiple times at the homeowner striking him at least once. The homeowner returned fire, striking at least one of the two intruders. That intruder was fatally wounded and collapsed in the roadway.
