HASTINGS, Mich. (WOOD) — The suspect who was shot by a Michigan State Police trooper Monday was arraigned on charges unrelated to the incident Thursday.

Ryan Miller, 36, was arraigned on charges of second-degree home invasion, possession of burglary tools, controlled substance delivery and manufacturing marijuana, and unlawful driving away in a motor vehicle.

He was shot while officers were attempting to arrest him on felony warrants Monday night. Investigators said police had information Miller would be in the parking lot at the Thornapple Valley Church on M-43 near Hastings.

He tried to flee, but a trooper blocked him from exiting the lot. Police said the man got out of his vehicle with what looked like a gun, ignored commands to drop the gun and was ultimately shot by the trooper. The gun was later found to be an airsoft pistol.

The officer who shot Miller has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into the shooting, which is standard protocol.

A probable cause hearing is scheduled for 8:15 a.m. April 11.
