One killed in officer-involved shooting


It happened around 10 p.m.

Officers returned fire and one man was killed and a second slightly injured.

Investigators said 31-year-old Thomas Austin Jr. was arrested after the shootout and charged with five counts of attempted murder. He was placed in the Wayne County Jail under a $1 million bond. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer. Two others were also arrested, but police have not released their names.

Officials said the State Bureau of Investigation has been called in to look at what happened - as is standard in officer-involved shootings.

The name of the dead man was not immediately released.
