Lansing Man Killed in Bath Hunting Incident
We reported here last week that a 38 year old Midland County man was fatally shot while hunting on private property in Antrim County on the afternoon of the first day of the firearm deer season in Michigan.
We've now learned that a 67 year old Lansing man was fatally shot around 10:00 this past Friday night, 11/16/18, on the second day of the firearm deer season in our state.
The Lansing State Journal reports that Bath Township police got a call Friday evening that a man was unresponsive in the 8500 block of East Clark Road in Clinton County, about three miles east of downtown Bath. It seems to have initially been thought that the man suffered a cardiac arrest, but the Lansing man who'd been hunting on State land in Bath Township, was fatally shot. He was wearing blaze orange.
It's not clear yet when the fatal shot was fired, nor at this point, does it seem to be known from where the shot originated. The incident remains under investigation by Bath Township Police, Clinton County Sheriff's Office, Michigan State Police and the DNR.
If you or anyone you know has any information that would assist in the investigation, please reach out to Det. Bryan Miller at our administrative number during business hours, or Clinton County Central Dispatch during non-business hours. Information can also be messaged anonymously to our Facebook page.
