Suicidal man taken into custody

(SANILAC COUNTY) -- Sanilac County Sheriff's deputies responded to call around 3:30 p.m. Saturday after a woman said her ex-boyfriend was armed with a shotgun and said he was going to kill himself. Deputies investigating in the Argyle Township area learned that the suspect, a 21-year-old Snover man, had broken into a home and a shotgun and handgun were missing. Police also learned that the suspect had sent photographs of the shotgun to his ex-girlfriend and said he would not be found. While searching on Freiburger Road, deputies spotted the suspect walking with what appeared to be a shotgun in his hand. Using the patrol car's loudspeaker, police ordered the suspect to drop the weapon. The suspect ignored police and walked to the front yard of a house. The homeowner knew the suspect and ran out of the house and grabbed the shotgun. The suspect then reached into his pocket and took something out. Police were unable to determine if it was the stolen handgun and continued to order the suspect to drop what was in his hand. The suspect then walked toward some outbuildings on the property. Police were able to taser the suspect and take him into custody a short time later. The suspect was transported to McKenzie Health System for treatment. He remains jailed without bond and is expected to be arraigned on multiple charges.
