Home Invasion Robbery Suspect Shot By Police 11-22-2010

Flint police were on the scene of an officer-involved shooting Monday morning.
Police Chief Alvern Lock told WNEM TV5 officers were called to a robbery just before 9 a.m. at a home in the 1800 block of Seneca Street, near Concord Street.
When officers arrived, they said they found four suspects inside the home.
Lock said one of the suspects, a teenage male, opened fire on an officer while he was fleeing the scene of the robbery. The officer returned fire and missed.
The suspect pointed his weapon at the officer a second time, when the officer fired another shot hitting the suspect in the leg.
He was transported to Hurley Medical Center in Flint. His condition is unknown at this time.
Police said two others were also arrested in connection with the home invasion, while the fourth person remains on the lose.
No officers were injured in the shooting. The case is under investigation, police said.
The 94-year-old homeowner, who was home and asleep at the time, was not injured.
“I thank Almighty God that my mother was safe through the situation,” said the daughter of the robbery victim. “But there’s many more out there, if we don’t stop and fight for our city and our homes and our neighborhoods, we’re just as guilty as they are.”
Neighbors in the area are calling for increased police protection, even though the city is facing possible cuts to public safety due to budget constraints.
