Officer shot in hand released from hospital; juvenile suspect dies

(HAMPTON TOWNSHIP) -- Authorities say a 16-year-old prisoner has died after shooting himself following a struggle with a Sebewaing Police officer, who was wounded outside a Bay County juvenile facility. Sheriff's Lt. Jim Chlebowski says Vincent Leo Derocco-Goulet died around 9 p.m. Thursday at a hospital. The officer was shot in the right hand about 1 p.m. Thursday after the boy grabbed his gun in Hampton Township. Police said the officer was transporting the boy to the juvenile home when he slipped a hand from his handcuffs and allegedly got a hold of the officer's gun. Chlebowski says the officer is Huron County Deputy Ward Carter, who was working as a part-time officer for the Sebewaing Police Department at the time of the incident. Deputy Carter has since been released from the hospital.
