BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A southwestern Michigan man has been shot to death during a confrontation with a man who was kicking a neighbor’s dog.

The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph reports (https://bit.ly/1ILCAbf ) Saturday that 53-year-old David Krieger was shot in the chest outside a hydraulic repair and supply shop in Benton Township, southwest of Grand Rapids.

Police say Krieger of Benton Harbor was pronounced dead after the 9 a.m. shooting in the store’s parking lot. A 30-year-old Benton Harbor man was arrested Friday afternoon in connection with the shooting.

Roy Thompson faces open murder and weapons charges. He was being held in the Berrien County Jail.

Police Chief Vince Fetke says Thompson was released from prison in 2013 and is on probation for a concealed weapons charge.
