Sebewaing man jailed after shooting incident

(HURON COUNTY) -- The 66-year old Sebewaing man that shot at police last week has been released from the hospital and is jailed on a $40,000 cash bond. George Barrett was arraigned Monday in Huron County District Court on charges of assault with intent to murder, felony firearm, and discharge of a weapon in a building. The charges stem from the incident last Tuesday in the 100 block of Young Street in the Village of Sebewaing. Barrett allegedly shot at his son after an argument. His son was able to run away from the residence to safety. As police set up a perimeter of the area, Barrett exited the home and shot at authorities several times. He was struck and injured by a Michigan State Police Trooper. The shooting by police remains under investigation and no charges have been filed. Barrett's pretrial hearing has been set for Monday, March 18 and a preliminary exam is scheduled for March 22.
