Man Killed; Deputy Injured After Eaton County Police Chase

Nov 28, 2017

Authorities say a person has been killed as the person and a central Michigan sheriff's deputy fired at each other following a short police chase.

State Police Lt. Lisa Risch says the Eaton County deputy suffered minor injuries in the confrontation Tuesday afternoon in a rural area of Brookfield Township, about 20 miles southwest of Lansing.

Risch says county deputies were assisting state Department of Natural Resources staffers in serving a felony warrant when the person fled in a vehicle and rammed a police vehicle a short distance away.

She says no one else was inside the fleeing vehicle.

Police didn't immediately release more information about the person who died or the deputy.

Details about the arrest warrant weren't immediately available.
