Traverse City Man Accused of Threatening to Kill Family Member Charged

We can now tell you the name of the person police say threatened a family member and then showed up at their house with a loaded gun.

Jacob Keeder of Traverse City is charged with running from police and felony firearm.

The Wexford County Sheriff’s Office says it started Sunday when Keeder threatened to kill a family member in Cadillac.

Deputies found Keeder leaving that family member’s home Sunday afternoon.

Armed with a loaded rifle, they say he kicked in the relative’s door but they were not home.

Deputies tried to stop Keeder as he left, but say he drove off.

After a short chase, he was arrested.

No contest pleas were made Keeder’s behalf.

He’ll be back in court next week.
