PAW PAW, Mich. (AP) — A southwestern Michigan police officer who fired five shots at a stolen car has been acquitted of reckless discharge of a gun. A jury in Van Buren County returned the verdict Friday. Chelsey Omilian was a Mattawan officer in November 2017 when she fired at a Chevrolet Impala. A woman inside the car was injured. Omilian’s lawyer says she fired her gun because she believed the male driver was trying to run her over. Sarissa Montague says Omilian had a “split second to make a hard decision.”

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Scientists are rushing to salvage a study of wolves and moose at Isle Royale National Park now that the partial government shutdown is over. Biologists typically spend seven weeks every winter on the Lake Superior island, observing the predator and prey species. But the park was off-limits during the shutdown. Co-leader Rolf Peterson says the team hopes to get to Isle Royale this week. A private foundation has raised funds to keep the project going if there’s another shutdown.

JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say police fatally shot a man during a domestic disturbance in southern Michigan and an officer was injured after falling while being fired upon. Jackson police say a woman called them early Monday and said an acquaintance was outside banging on her apartment door and wouldn’t leave. Police say officers exchanged fire with the man and he died at the scene. An officer was treated for a leg injury at a hospital and released.

BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) — A technicality has stopped an effort to suspend a Livingston County judge who is facing criminal charges. The Michigan Supreme Court says it must have a recommendation from the state Judicial Tenure Commission, not the watchdog agency’s staff. Judge Theresa Brennan is facing misconduct charges as well as a separate criminal case. She’s already been barred from hearing cases, but a suspension could stop her pay.
