KOYLTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a Michigan man killed in a shootout in which a Wisconsin state trooper also died was responsible for nine bank robberies.

Steven T. Snyder and 21-year-old Trooper Trevor Casper died March 24 in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Authorities say the 38-year-old Snyder had just robbed the State Bank of Florence in Wausaukee, Wisconsin, when the rookie trooper confronted him.

Police say Snyder earlier killed 59-year-old motorist Thomas C. Christ near the bank.

The Grand Rapids Press and the Petoskey News Review say investigators from Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin now link Snyder to eight robberies in 2011-2015. They were in Croton, Luther, Pellston and Wellston, Michigan; Hatley, Haugen and Poplar, Wisconsin; and Rochester, Ohio.

Snyder was from Tuscola County’s Koylton Township in Michigan’s Thumb, 70 miles north of Detroit.
