Monroe Co. Sheriff: Attempted homicide at Milan Beach, formerly Heath Beach, in Michigan on Saturday

A 21-year-old Ohio man is in hospital in critical condition and two suspects were arrested following a police chase that ended in Whiteford Twp.

MILAN, Mich. — A 21-year-old Ohio man is in critical condition after being shot at Milan Beach in Michigan on Saturday, according to the Monroe County Sheriff. Two Michigan men were taken into custody.

Police were dispatched to Milan Beach around 7:20 p.m. on a report of a shooting.

When they got there they found a 21-year-old Ohio man who had been shot multiple times.

The victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Witnesses also told police that immediately after the shooting they saw a black SUV fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed.

A Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy located an SUV that matched that description a short time later on US 23 and attempted to pull them over.

When the SUV failed to stop, a police chase began.

Police were eventually able to stop the vehicle on Sylvania-Petersburg Rd
near Sterns Rd in Whiteford Township after a lengthy chase.

Two men, a 24-year-old Warren man and the passenger, a 22-year-old Taylor man, were taken into custody.

Charges are pending.

Milan is north of Dundee. Milan Beach is a privately-owned beach that is open to the public. It is located just off of US 23 Exit 22 on Cone Rd. 

Milan Beach was formerly known as Heath Beach.
