ROSEVILLE, Mich. (WWJ) – It’s a story you heard first on WWJ Newsradio 950. A man in Roseville is fatally shot by police Sunday morning.

Roseville Police Chief Michael Pachla tells WWJ that three officers were involved in the shooting. Pachla saying that officers were called to the man’s home on Judilane — in the Kelly Road and Davidson area — around 4:00 Sunday morning after police dispatchers received a call from a crisis center about a man threatening to commit suicide.

“The man also threatened to shoot any responding officers,” Pachla told WWJ. Pachla went on to say that the officers observed the man on foot armed with a firearm and when they ordered him to drop the firearm … he pointed it at the officers; who then responded and shot him.

The identity of the 52-year-old man has not been released. However, Pachla says he lived with his mother who was not harmed.

Per standard procedure, the officers have been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is under investigation.
