IONIA COUNTY (WKZO) -- A suspect in a domestic abuse complaint died in a shootout with police in Ionia County Sunday.

Officers chased the man on M-66 until they were able to blow out the tires of his delivery truck with stop sticks.

The suspect then headed cross-country on foot with a pump-action shotgun.

When they confronted him in a field near Hubbell and M-66, he reportedly fired at officers.

They returned fire and he was killed at the scene.   His name has not been released.
