HUMBOLDT TOWNSHIP – The Michigan State Police say a 50-year-old Humboldt Township woman was shot and killed after officers responded to a domestic dispute.
According to police, Lori Lee was armed with a rifle when police arrived at the residence on County Road FS in Champion. Lee pointed the rifle at the officers and refused their commands to put the firearm down, according to the Michigan State Police.
A 17-year MSP trooper then fired at Lee, striking her in the chest. The Marquette County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy on Lee, verifying that she died from a single fatal gunshot wound to the chest.
Both the Michigan State Police trooper and Marquette County Sheriff’s deputy have been put on administrative leave in accordance with policy, pending an investigation.
