MSP: No charges expected this week following officer-involved …

KOCHVILLE TOWNSHIP (WJRT) – (03/13/17) – UPDATE – It could be some time before charges are filed against a man who pointed a gun at police Friday night.

One of the officers ended up shooting the 69-year-old Midland County man near Saginaw Valley State University.

He survived and is in stable condition.

Now, Michigan State Police investigators have a lot of information to sort through. They have collected dash cam, body camera and cellphone video.

“We actually had an individual take a cellphone video from the 7-Eleven parking lot that has proved very instrumental in our case. Having said that, most of these people work, have kids and have lives. We need to make a time to get with these people to interview them because what they have seen is very important to us,” said Lt. David Kaiser, with the Michigan State Police.
