Report: Anti-Abortion Activist Gunned Down Outside Michigan High School
Friday, September 11, 2009
A well-known anti-abortion activist reportedly was shot multiple times and killed Friday morning in front of a Michigan high school as police investigate a second homicide possibly linked to the shooting.
Michigan State Police have taken a suspect into custody but have not released the name of the victim, the Flint News reported. The school was placed on immediate lockdown, though no students were injured or involved in the shooting, Ossowo Hish School officials told the paper.
School officials say the shooting took place outside of school grounds around 7:30 a.m., when most students were already inside the building for classes. The school, located 20 miles west of Flint, has since been on lockdown.
The suspect was picked up at his home at about 8:15 a.m. and is now being investigated in connection with a second homicide just a few miles away from the school, the WNEM News reported.
As police sift through the second "homicide scene" near an Ossowo gravel pit Friday morning, they have ringed off a section of street in front of the high school, where a large sign bearing the image of a baby and the word "Life" can be seen, the Flint News reported.
