- Previous story: Man found dead after burglary and shooting in Milan
A victim of a home invasion in Milan is in custody, suspected of following one of the intruders and fatally shooting him late Thursday, police said.
Interim Milan Police Chief Jeremy Nieman said the person in custody is under investigation for murder, but no charges have been filed. Nieman would not release the person's gender.
Two men broke into a home on Anderson Street shortly before midnight while two women and a man were inside, Nieman said.
After the intruders stole property, one person inside the home followed the men along a path that connects the neighborhoods and opened fire, he said.
The victim was found dead on O'Brian Drive in the nearby Scottsdale Estates subdivision lying behind a car. The other man involved in the home invasion left the area.
Scottsdale Estates is across Platt Road from Symons Elementary School.
Witnesses told AnnArbor.com that they heard two gunshots. One witness said he saw what appeared to be a man running toward the back of a home near the path after the shooting.
The man being sought in connection with the home invasion is described as black, 6 feet, 3 inches tall, 185 pounds and in his early 20s, police said.
Investigators executed a search warrant at the Anderson Street home Friday morning, but Nieman would not say what was seized.
Police have not released the shooting victim's name.
