Man shot by police now facing animal killing charges

Wyoming police shooting

WYOMING, MICH. - A Wyoming man who was shot by police that were responding to a domestic call is in good condition at a local hospital.

Now police say the man is facing several charges, including one count of killing an animal.

Wyoming police were answering the call early Tuesday morning at the Ramblewood Apartments.

Police say they went into an apartment, and confronted 25-year-old Casey Quinlan, who they say had a gun. One of the officers shot at Quinlan several times, and took his gun. The officer who fired the shots is now on administrative leave. Investigators say the animal killing charge is related to Quinlan killing a cat.

 The case remains under investigation while Quinlan recovers. 

Quinlan was charged with two counts of firearm-discharging in or at a building, a 10-year felony, and killing and/or torturing an animal, a four-year offense. Police say he killed a cat.

Quinlan has a 2016 arrest in Wyoming for domestic violence, which was pled down to disorderly conduct.
