The sheriff’s office said its deputies and officers from the Sturgis Department of Public Safety found 30-year-old David Keith Algarin, Jr. around 11:10 a.m. He drove off and a pursuit began, police said.

The chase ended on M-86 near Kane Road just across the border into Branch County. The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Office says an “officer-involved shooting” resulted in Algarin Jr.’s death. Deputies did not say outright whether the suspect was killed by an officer or how he died.

Michigan State Police have taken over the investigation, which is standard protocol.

Algarin is suspected of fatally shooting two people near Sturgis Saturday.

The first shooting happened around 10:45 p.m. Officers with the Sturgis Department of Public Safety were sent to the S. Centerville Road and South Street area after receiving reports about a shooting victim.

Responding officers found a 39-year-old woman who had been shot. She was taken to the hospital, where she died.

Deputies with the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Office were called to assist with the investigation. They went to a home at the Sweet Lake Manufactured Community on US-12 east of Sturgis where they found a 61-year-old man shot dead.

Police had asked for the public’s help on Sunday morning to find Algarin, noting he was driving a 1999 Black Honda CRV.

That vehicle was left on the side of M-86 as multiple agencies investigated Algarin’s death for several hours Sunday evening. A drone was seen flying overhead, and part of the road was closed.

Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Joseph County Central Dispatch at 269.467.4195.

The shootings remain under investigation.
