Woman Opens Fire on Intruder, Police Find Pot Operation

Posted: Updated:

HOLT, Mich. (WLNS) - Police are investigating after they say a woman shot an armed intruder at her home early this morning.

They're also investigating because officials say they found a large marijuana growing operation. The say the homeowner was not licensed to grow the amount in the home. Officials also found seven guns, one rifle, one knock-off AK-47 and five hand guns.

The incident started just after 12 a.m. Thursday, when police say a 20-year-old man armed with a gun entered through the unlocked back door of a house in Holt.

Deputies say the suspect got into a fight with a man inside the house, and that a woman in the house shot the suspect, hitting him several times.

Investigators say they arrived to find the suspect handcuffed just inside the front door and that he had also apparently been beaten with a baseball bat.

The 20-year-old suspect is in critical condition with bullet wounds to his shoulder, torso and hand.

The homeowners and four kids, ranging from 8-months to 10-years-old, inside the house were not hurt.

Deputies got a search warrant for the house and say they found a marijuana growing operation and that they found "a lot" of pot in the house. The Tri-County Metro Narcotics team is investigating, as well.

The home's backyard is next to Hope Middle School.
