A man with a long gun was shot dead north of Ionia late in the afternoon. But whether he killed himself, or police shot him, is another question yet.

The domestic violence suspect was chased north along M-66 and, after stop sticks deflated his truck's tires, he got out and tried running away.

WOOD TV says he got about two miles before being spotted by state Troopers. Allegedly, he pointed his gun at them and fired, and they fired back. No officer was wounded and police promise more details later today.
