Burglary Suspect In Custody for Killing Michigan Officer

July 24, 2010  | 

A burglary suspect shot and killed Taylor (Mich.) police officer Matthew Edwards, while the officer questioned him about an apartment break-in early Friday morning, the department announced.

Edwards, a 31-year-old with five years experience on the force, had responded to the call with a partner with about two hours remaining on his shift.

After the suspect fatally shot Edwards, the officer's partner returned fire and wounded the man, who is now in custody.

Edwards had been a state officer of the year in 2008. It was the first line-of-duty death in the department's more than 70-year history.
