Michigan State Police still investigating shooting by deputy in Barry County


BARRY COUNTY, MI (WTVB) - We know a little more about the man who died in a police related shooting this weekend in Barry County. Michigan State Police investigating the fatal shooting of a suspect by a deputy from the Barry County Sheriff's Department still aren’t saying what he did to provoke the deputy into shooting him.   

The suspect, 41-year old businessman and auto mechanic Ralph Elliott, was on probation because he reportedly got drunk last year and threatened to kill his wife.  As a condition of probation, he was banned from possessing a gun. But he had one Saturday night, and had reportedly fired it twice before deputies arrived.  The deputy remains on administrative leave while they investigate.
