The Ingham County Sheriffs Office says it's one of strangest cases they've worked on in a while.
Shortly after midnight Thursday they found a 20 year old man handcuffed inside a home on the 4200 block of Holt road.
Deputies say the man broke into the home armed and was shot multiple times by a woman inside, his latest condition was listed as critical.
Nick Perreault talks about how this case brings the heated debate of gun control into the mid-Michigan spotlight.
When it comes to home protection, Phillip Hofmeister, President of Michigan Open Carry, says you can't go wrong with a firearm.
"A shotgun or a semi-automatic rifle also make excellent tools for home defense as well," said President MI Open Carry Phillip Hofmeister.
A handgun was the tool of choice for a holt woman who shot a man who entered a home on the 4200 block Holt road Thursday morning, a house with four children inside.
That scenario is the case in point For Hofmeister and gun supporters, who say weapons are sometimes necessary to save lives.
"What would the situation be like, if the defender wasn't armed, with any type of gun I would rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it," Hofmeister said.
But there's modest protection and then there's the long rifle and Romanian ak47, Sheriff's deputies found inside the home, weapons that worry Rina Risper.
"We have the ability to purchase guns that have the capability of doing a lot of damage with the ammunition," said New Citizens Press Community Action Network Member Rina Risper.
Risper works with victims of crime and their families, many of them affected by gun violence and she says it has to stop.
"There has to be some rational discussion about what we as a community, what we as a city, state and nation are going to do, in regards to what we are going to do to keep our children safe," Risper said.
And the safety of children is something nearly everyone can support.
