Florida man shot, arrested in Michigan after allegedly torching 4 state police cruisers

Michigan State Police said Thursday they shot and arrested a 39-year-old Florida man in connection with four of the agency’s cruisers being set ablaze and shot at outside a post in the Upper Peninsula.

A gunfight began while officers were executing a search warrant around 1:45 p.m. Thursday at a property in the Sault Ste. Marie area, said Lt. Mark Giannunzio, a state police spokesperson.

The suspect fired shots at troopers and the officers returned fire, Giannunzio said in an email. The man was hit and taken by ambulance to a hospital, he said.

Sault Ste. Marie is a city at the northeastern tip of the Upper Peninsula, about 300 miles north of Detroit.
