Man in stable condition after being shot Tuesday as details around incident remain unclear

By Kyle Feldscher

The man who was dropped off at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital after being shot Tuesday afternoon was in stable condition Wednesday but investigators still don’t have much information on the case.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Geoffrey Fox said the investigation into the shooting continued Wednesday, but there was no new information to release. Deputies were notified at 12:48 p.m. Tuesday that a man was dropped off with a gunshot wound at the orthopedics building at the hospital in Superior Township.

Huron Valley Ambulance crews took the man to the emergency room in critical condition. Fox said Tuesday the man refused to speak to deputies before going into surgery.

“We have made some progress in the investigation but have to confirm some information before we can release anything,” Fox said.

The man was out of surgery and stable as of Wednesday afternoon.

To this point, it’s unknown where the man was before he was shot or who might have shot him. Deputies have not released any information about the man, such as his age or where he is from.

The sheriff's office took the initial lead on the investigation. However, the investigating agency may change if it turns out the man was shot in a different agency's jurisdiction.

with as many cameras as they have at the traffic lights in the area, and hospitals, you would think it would be easy to track the individuals who so graciously dropped him off at the hospital before fleeing

Agreed. I know who this is and they are NOT good people. They engage in activities that are not healthy and I knew it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.
