BLACKMAN TWP., MI - Police are continuing to search for an intruder believed to have been shot when he entered the home of an elderly man on Winifred Street.
As of Tuesday morning, he had not been found, Blackman-Leoni Township public safety Deputy Director Christoper Boulter wrote in an email.
A man fired at least four times Friday night at the intruder, said to be armed with a knife, and the man fled with the homeowner's gun and pickup truck.
Police believe the shooting was justified. "Someone came into his home, was armed with a knife, and assaulted him. He does not have a duty to retreat, and he was defending himself," Boulter wrote.
