HESPERIA, Mich. — Michigan State Police investigators released on Tuesday the name of the individual who was shot by a trooper over the weekend.
Johnny Owen King, 63, had been living at the home in Beaver Township that the shooting happened at, according to a news release.
Troopers were investigating a domestic assault and were inside a travel trailer when they asked King to come outside to talk with them.
