Troopers from the Michigan State Police (MSP) Flint post were involved in a fatal shooting late Tuesday night.

According to a news release, the shooting occurred at around 10:15 p.m. at the Evergreen Regency Apartments. While conducting patrols, troopers attempted to stop and question a  person acting suspiciously. The suspect fled and a short foot chase ensued. The suspect then turned and pointed a gun at the troopers. After refusing to comply with both troopers giving commands to drop the weapon, the troopers fired and fatally injured the suspect.

The troopers, who were not injured, have been placed on administrative leave. The incident remains under investigation.
