Police seek more information regarding several incidents in Jackson County and the Waterloo area


JACKSON CO., MI (WLNS) – On Tuesday, two people pulled up to the intersection of Summit Ave and Deyo and began shooting at each other. After that the situation escalated where one driver led police on a short chase and was stopped near the intersection of Washington and Cooper by Comtronics Place. That person is 34-year-old Keith McLeain who was arraigned Thursday afternoon on charges of felony firearms, two counts of resisting and obstruction, and one charge of fleeing the police.

But, according to Jackson police this is unrelated to a previous shooting at a nearby location.

“It does appear that this female acquaintance may be . . .have some involvement as far as what the argument could be over, what the dispute could be over. But, right now it’s not exactly clear what the confrontation was the result of,” said Jackson Police Deputy Chief Elmer Hitt.

Nobody was hurt and the investigation is ongoing.

Also, the Jackson Narcotics Enforcement Team took 56 marijuana plants and an illegal handgun from a property. It happened near the intersection of Seventh Street and Washington Avenue just after 9 p.m. Wednesday night. Four adults and two children were in the house at the time. But, only a 32-year-old Jackson woman lives there. No arrests have been made, but charges may be sent to Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka for review.

And, we told you about a dangerous home invasion earlier this week in the Waterloo area. Just after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, Michigan State Police Brighton Post responded to the 7000 block of Lingane Road near Waterloo Road. That’s in the Waterloo Recreation Area near the Jackson-Washtenaw County border. According to police, three arrests have been made but 47-year-old Scott Allen Libby who they say is considered a person of interest. Libby is considered armed and dangerous.

The Michigan State Police Brighton Post is asking for your help in tracking down Libby by calling 810-227-1051 with any information.
