Man brought to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital with gunshot wound

By Kyle Feldscher

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating after a man was brought to an Ann Arbor-area hospital with a gunshot wound Tuesday.

Sgt. Geoffrey Fox said investigators were notified of the man being brought to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital at 12:48 p.m. Tuesday. Investigators spoke with the man briefly before he went into surgery, but were unable to glean any information.

“Our victim is uncooperative at this point,” Fox said.

The man was alert, conscious and talking before going into surgery. He was being operated on at 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Huron Valley Ambulance spokeswoman Joyce Williams said the man was dropped off at the St. Joseph Orthopedics building with a gunshot wound. Security there called 911 and HVA personnel transported him to the emergency room.

The man was in critical condition, Williams said.

Fox said more information on the incident might not be available for a number of hours. “We’re doing the initial investigation,” he said. “It’s undetermined where he was shot.”

At this point, investigators don’t know where the man was shot and will have to wait until he’s out of surgery to interview him.

Glad he's going to handle this himself, that will save us all some money.

Age? Other information? Do they even teach "Who, what, where, when?" anymore?

Well Paul, we do, but at this point the answer to all of those questions that I've gotten from deputies are "We don't know."

I am betting they are talking about in what city or township, not what part of his body he was shot in.

"Our victim is uncooperative at this point", Sgt. Fox said. Gee, you think the fact he's in critical condition might have something to do with it? He's not going to sit down and give you a prolonged statement in that condition, I'd guess.

"The man was alert, conscious and talking before going into surgery." Sounds to me like they asked him what happened, and he said "I'm not talking."

"Uncooperative" and "unable" are not the same thing.
