GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. - One man is dead after an officer-involved shooting Sunday morning, according to the Kent County Sheriff's Office. The man was identified on Monday as Steven Forrest Saucier, 34.
Deputies responded to a home in Gaines Township on 100th Street around 4 a.m. Sunday for a domestic disturbance. A man met police at the door with a gun. The sheriff's office said he pointed the weapon at deputies, and one deputy fired back, killing the man.
Police said several deputies were injured during the incident, but they are expected to recover.
Neighbors who live near the house said they didn't see much, especially since the shooting happened in the early morning hours. One household said they heard a bang and shortly after that, they heard sirens.
Other neighbors in the area said a couple recently moved into the house where the shooting occurred. One man said the people who live on that street are pretty closely knit, but they hadn't gotten to know the people who had moved in just a few months before.
As is protocol, the officer-involved shooting will be investigated by another department. The nearby Wyoming Police Department handle the investigation.
