Man Killed in Hazel Park Home Invasion
A suspected robber was fatally shot inside a Hazel Park home, early Friday morning. Police learned the victim and the shooter were acquaintances.
Around 1 a.m., the homeowner called police saying he’d shot an intruder. When investigators arrived they found 22-year-old Michael Wycoff dead upstairs.
The homeowner claimed his house had been ransacked and a window was broken, so he grabbed his gun and found Wycoff in an upstairs closet. Police said there was a confrontation and the homeowner fired.
According to authorities, the homeowner knew the [sic] Wycoff’s sister and all three were together at her home earlier in the evening.
Police are still investigating and the homeowner has not been arrested. Wycoff has a criminal history including home invasion.
