ALBION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - An Albion Township homeowner shot one of two people who attempted to rob him and his wife on Thursday morning.
Deputies were called around 9:30 a.m. to the couple's home in the 16000 block of J Drive South, according to the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.
The victims told authorities that the two suspects threatened them with baseball bats shortly after the couple arrived home.
The male victim was assaulted, he told deputies, but managed to free himself from the suspects and get a gun. When one of the suspects came at him again, the homeowner said, he shot at the suspect. The homeowner was fairly certain the bullet he fired had hit the suspect.
The suspects then fled the area.
Deputies and Albion Department of Public Safety officers searched the area with K-9 units and a Michigan State Police helicopter.
Later Thursday, the two suspects were identified and taken into custody. One of them told police he was shot during a drive-by incident in Jackson County.
