Police seek man in connection with shooting death in Ann Arbor (UPDATED 2PM)

Ann Arbor Police are searching for a 28-year-old man, Andrew Myrick, wanted for questioning in a shooting death that occurred at his home around 10pm last night.

The body of a 29-year-old Ypsilanti man was found inside his duplex on Jones Drive just off Plymouth Road.

If you see Andrew Myrick, please call Ann Arbor police at 734-996-3199

Police are saying Myrick may have been at home when the victim (and let this be a lesson to B&E idiots--you NEVER KNOW what's behind that door) broke in as police said there were signs of forced entry, and a gunfight erupted as a LARGE amount of bullet holes were found inside and outside the residence. An "AK-47 type weapon" was found at the scene said Ann Arbor Detective Sgt. Richard Kinsey.

"This may have been a residential robbery that went bad. It's in his residence that this took place and he's gone. We'd like to talk with him." said Kinsey.

Johnny thinks now, that Mr. Myrick had an illegal weapon in his home and felt he HAD to use it to save his life. We also understand him bolting under such circumstances but would advise him to turn himself in once his head clears. Killing a guy shooting at you in your home with an illegal weapon you never wanted to use is heady stuff.
