Man Shot In The Neck After Breaking Into Woman’s Home


PORT HURON, MICHIGAN – A man was shot in the neck and wounded while allegedly trying to break into a Port Huron home that was occupied by a woman and small child, according to police. Port Huron police were summoned around 5 a.m. Sunday to the 900 block of Huron Avenue. The caller reported that a disorderly man was in the street and yelling for help. Minutes later, a woman called police to tell them she had shot someone who had tried to break into her home. She also said she and a small child were alone in the home.

Responding officers located the man at the corner of Huron Avenue and Beers Street, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to his neck. Police rendered first aid until medics arrived and transported him to a nearby hospital for initial treatment. The 35-year-old man, whose identity was not released, is in stable condition after being transferred to another hospital in nearby Macomb County.

The woman, who was released following questioning by police, said that she did not know the man or why he tried to enter her home. Officials said the investigation is on-going and no charges have been filed at this time.

Michigan is one of many states that has a castle doctrine law on the books, which allows a person to use deadly force if a person is in fear of bodily harm, sexual assault or death from someone who has illegally entered, or is attempting to enter, their home.
