MI: Armored Car Guard Shoots Two

Police Chief Fred Posavetz saidthat shortly before 1 p.m., a Garda armored car security guard was entering the bank at 37370 Gratiot when he was accosted by a robber.

“They got into a gun battle,” Posavetz said, adding that the suspect was “shot several times by the armored car officer.”

In the exchange of gunfire, the guard also shot a getaway driver who was sitting nearby in a stolen minivan, Posavetz said.
