MI: Man who used .22 rilfle to Shoot, Kill, two Tresspasses with Burglary tools found Guilty of 2nd Degree Murder

Jurors on Tuesday afternoon convicted Lawrence, 55, of two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of McMillen and his friend Hunter Lentz, both 18.

In doing so, the jury rejected the arguments of Lawrence's lawyers, who contended Lawrence acted in self-defense or lawfully prevented the escape of two fleeing felons on his property with ill intent.

He used a .22-caliber rifle to shoot and kill them June 8, 2016 on Town Road in Springport Township.

Not really a surprise. It appears he shot them as they ran away. If the law doesn’t let the police shoot someone under those circumstances, you’re going to have a hard time convincing a jury that you should be able to do it.
