According to the Michigan State Police, at about 9:15 p.m. on April 12, troopers from the Michigan State Police (MSP) Calumet Post, along with a deputy from the Houghton County Sheriff’s Department, were dispatched to a report of shots fired at a residence in Hubbell.
MSP says upon arriving, officers encountered a 28-year-old woman who was outside the residence, armed with a gun. The officers gave repeated verbal commands to the woman to drop her gun, but she refused and instead attempted to re-enter the occupied home with the firearm.
Fearing for the safety of an elderly person inside the residence, officers fired their weapons, striking the woman. After the shooting, the officers administered first aid until EMS arrived. She was transported to a local hospital. At this time, she is alive and was air-lifted to a Green Bay, Wis. hospital Tuesday.
