Police respond to shooting near gas station
MT. MORRIS TWP. — On March 17, Flushing police responded to the scene of a shooting that happened at the intersection of E. Pierson and
Elms roads near the Speedway gas station. Officers arrived and found a 37-year-old male gunshot victim from Flint at the gas station. Witnesses said that the man had been shot inside a car as it was traveling eastbound down E. Pierson Road at around 5:45 p.m. However, police said that the victim was uncooperative and tried to conceal where he had been shot. Flushing police stayed on the scene until Mt. Morris Township police could arrive, since the shooting took place just outside Flushing’s jurisdiction at the Flushing/Mt. Morris Township border.
Later that afternoon, Mt. Morris Township police and Genesee County Sheriff’s deputies located and arrested a female suspect in the immediate area. Police said that the woman had shot the man, who was a passenger in her vehicle, while she was driving through the Pierson Road/Elms Road intersection. The victim then exited the car near the gas station, where he was discovered by witnesses and police.
The Genesee County Prosecutor’s Office has filed five charges against the woman, including assault with intent to inflict great bodily harm, felony firearm, carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest and obstruction and domestic violence.
Driver busted for narcotics, weapons
FLUSHING — On March 13 at approximately 10:55 p.m., police conducting traffic enforcement on the 1400 block of E. Pierson Road noticed a silver Grand Prix speeding westbound into Flushing. When officers attempted to stop the car, the driver led them on a short pursuit into the city through the downtown area. Police managed to stop the vehicle behind a row of businesses and arrested the driver, who resisted arrest and tried to fight the officers as he was being detained. During the arrest, officers discovered multiple handguns in the car, as well as methamphetamine and crack cocaine.
The Genesee County Prosecutor’s Office has issued 19 felony counts against the 38-year-old driver, who has felony convictions and an extensive criminal history in his past.
A 34-year-old female and a 12-year-old child were also in the vehicle at the time of the arrest. Police contacted Child Protective Services but released the woman and the child, who were both unharmed during the driver’s arrest.
Man arrested on outstanding warrant
FLUSHING — On March 6 at 8:50 p.m., officers conducted a traffic stop on a pick-up truck at the intersection of Chamberlain and Main streets after the driver failed to heed a stop sign. During the traffic stop, police learned that the 46-year-old male driver had an outstanding warrant in Shiawassee County. As they took the man into custody, police located a knife in the truck’s center console and a hatchet wedged between the driver’s seat and the console. The vehicle was towed, and the driver was transferred to the Shiawassee County Jail. Flushing police have sent a report to the Genesee County Prosecutor’s Office to review possible weapons charges against the driver. — Compiled by Ben Gagnon
