BLACKMAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Michigan police say a man shot by an elderly homeowner during a home invasion sought treatment for a gunshot wound five days after that shooting.

Blackman-Leoni Township public safety detectives say officers have interviewed the 37-year-old man, who will be taken into custody when he’s released from a Jackson hospital.

Deputy Chief Christopher Boulter tells The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/2iuUPqo ) the man allegedly entered a home Dec. 23 armed with a knife and struggled with the elderly homeowner.

The homeowner fired at least four shots before the intruder fled with the homeowner’s gun and pickup truck.

Authorities were still searching for the suspect when he arrived Wednesday night at Henry Ford Allegiance Health with a reported gunshot wound to his abdomen.



Authorities haven’t released the man’s name.
