LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Prosecutors say an investigation has found Lansing police officers were justified in the shootings that injured a 25-year-old Ingham County man.
County Prosecutor Carol Simeon said in a release Monday her office reviewed the Michigan State Police probe into the March 31 shooting of Michael Magik Jones of Holt. Authorities say he was wounded after shooting at tactical officers, who tracked him down after he had fired at another officer.
The release says the three officers were “justified” in firing weapons, given Jones’ “criminal actions.” It adds they defended their own lives and others.
Police say the officers, back on full duty after suspensions, provided life-saving measures to Jones afterward.
