  • Feel good story of the week, or tragic incident?

    Pinconning man attempts burglary, ends up dead

    By Cole Waterman | The Bay City Times

    A would-be thief wound up losing his life early Friday morning, report troopers from the Michigan State Police Bay City Post.

    About 6:25 a.m., the owner of the Roadside Inn, 2241 N. Huron in Fraser Township, called 911 to report someone trying to break into her apartment above the bar, troopers report.

    “While we were en route, we were advised a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle outside of the bar,” said one trooper. “Long story short, it turned out to be our suspect.”

    The suspect had been struck by at least two cars, the trooper said.

    According to troopers, the owner and the burglar engaged in a stare down through the window of a locked door, each brandishing a handgun. The interloper eventually fled when the woman said she was calling 911.

    The trespasser never gained entry to the residence, troopers report.

    A percussion-type pistol was found in the road a short distance from where the suspect was struck, troopers said. Burglary tools were also reported to have been left at the scene.

    The suspect was transported by ambulance to Bay Regional Medical Center. Though hospital personnel attempted to treat his injuries, the man died.

    As the suspect did not have identification on him, troopers used his cell phone and jail documents to identify him.

    The suspect is a 25-year-old Pinconning man, though troopers are not releasing his name.

    Troopers do not expect either of the drivers that struck the man to be charged, citing the heavy rain and darkness as contributing to the collision.

            I loved the ending!, made me tear, the only thing that would have been better is if he'd have shot at her with a starter pistol and she returned fire...

              So, I assume the robber was not shot, but instead killed by motorists? The writer was kinda fuzzy on that.

              Feel good IMO. A dead firearms felon is the best kind. Best of all, no innocent people were hurt.

                  "each motorist was awarded repair monies from the state victim's compensation fund..." would have been cool too.
