Alleged carjacker in Burton shot by apartment security guard

An armed security guard on patrol at Kings Lane apartments shot and critically wounded a man who allegedly attempted to carjack the guard’s personal car Monday night, Burton police reported.

In a media release, Detective Shawn Duncanson said a 21-year-old male threatened the guard with a handgun and attempted to take his vehicle at 4400 Kings Lane about 9:38 p.m. on Monday.

The security guard, of Michigan Security and Investigations, shot the suspect twice in the torso with a .357 Magnum, Duncanson said.

The suspect was reported in critical condition at an area hospital.

Duncanson said the incident will be forwarded to the Genesee County prosecutor’s office for review.

He said he does not expect any charges to be filed against the guard.
