ALBION, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was shot by an officer in Albion on Wednesday, police say.

Family members had told police about a relative who “was having psychological issues and was taking psychological medication and drinking,” the Albion Department of Public Safety said in a release. It said he was “irrational.”

Police say he had told his family he wanted to kill a relative he had had a fight with a few weeks before.

ADPS says officers tried finding him in order to get him help, but only knew that he was possibly in the Marshall area. They put the information out about him to multiple departments around 5:20 p.m.

Around 6:30 p.m. police got a report of an “unwanted subject” who was on the porch of the relative he had threatened in the 700 block of N Eaton Street near W Chestnut Street.

They say the man successfully broke into the front door of the home and the family member fled out the back door.

ADPS says three officers responded — including two that are part of the crisis intervention team — and confronted him.

Police say he “quickly turned toward the officers and started to raise the gun.”

Officers told him to drop it multiple times, APDS said.

Police say one officer shot at him and he fell to the floor.

Officers started to render first aid until an ambulance came and brought him to the hospital, APDS said. His condition is unknown.

The officer has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

Michigan State Police is investigating at the request of ADPS.
