    JACKSON, Mich. (WOOD/AP) - Authorities say a 63-year-old man who fatally shot one police officer and wounded another in Jackson was also shot to death.
    A Blackman Township Public Safety officer and a Jackson police officer responded about 12:20 a.m. Tuesday to the 100 block of Mitchell Street. A news release did not specify why the officers were called to the home.
    When they arrived they made contact with the homeowner, 63-year-old Elvin Potts, who pulled out a handgun and fired three times at the officers. Both of the officers were hit with bullets. One of the officers then fired his gun at Potts, killing him, police say.
    Jackson Police Officer James Bonneau and Blackman Township Public Safety Officer Darrin McIntosh were taken to Allegiance Hospital.
    Officer Bonneau died from his injuries. Officer McIntosh underwent surgery for a non-life-threatening injury to his lower body, according to the Associated Press.
    The Jackson County Major Crimes Task Force, Jackson County Sheriff's Office and state police are investigating the incident.
    Officer Bonneau, 26, had been with the Jackson Police Department since November 2007. Officer McIntosh, 22, has been with the Blackman Township Department of Public Safety for about a year.

    An updated story....very sad, the officers were looking for the suspect ref followup from a disturbance at another location, another example of how an "everyday" call can go to shit...fast. Be safe brothers and sisters.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
