Suspect in home invasion treated for week-old gunshot wound

JACKSON, Mich (WLNS) – The search has ended for a man who was wounded during a home invasion last week in Blackman Township.

Detectives from the Blackman-Leoni Township Department of Public Safety tell 6 News that a man walked into Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital last night with a gunshot wound in his abdomen.

Officers were called and they were able to determine that the man was a suspect in an armed home invasion on Winifred Street in Blackman Township December 23.

Investigators say the man was shot by the elderly homeowner who fired at least four shots before the intruder fled with the homeowner’s gun and pickup truck.

The 37-year-old man has been admitted to the hospital and when he’s released from Henry Ford he will be taken to the Jackson County Jail.
