ALBION, Mich. (WOOD) — Police who were called to break up a fight in Albion Wednesday night found a man who had been hit by a car and killed. They are investigating the case as a homicide.
The Albion Department of Public Safety got a call that there was a fight at an apartment complex on Sycamore Street just south of W. Erie Street and that guns may be involved. When officers arrived, they found a large crowd. While trying to break it up, they found the body of a 61-year-old Albion man.
