GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - The man who police say shot and killed himself after engaging in a standoff with officers Sunday was in prison until about eight months ago, 24 Hour News 8 has learned.
Sunday afternoon, the Kent County Sheriff's Department identified him as 27-year-old Trevor Barton Degroot-Boulter.
Police surrounded a house Degroot-Boulter was in after they received evidence that suspects involved in a Sunday morning home invasion in Grand Rapids Township were inside.
Several others in the house are being questioned for a possible connection with Sunday morning's break-in.
Most recently, records show, Degroot-Boulter was found guilty on drug related charges, including trafficking, after he was arrested by police in Reno, Nevada in 2009. He was released from prison on parole last November.
In 2007, he was charged and convicted in Grand Rapids for possession of marijuana.
The suspect also has assault convictions from 2002 and 2006. His record includes charges of driving under the influence as a minor, a probation violation, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, and contempt of court, according to state police and court records.
It might be December but that is not stopping some people from "hanging 10" in Michigan.
A driver escaped safely after its vehicle crashed into the Grand River in Ottawa County Friday morning.
