Benton Harbor Man Killed By Police After Standoff
A standoff between Police and a Benton Harbor man ended in gunfire yesterday. Marcus Meridy allegedly kidnapped Kenyatta Wright, his estranged wife, at gunpoint Wednesday morning.
Police say he then went to an American Inn, leading to a standoff between police and Meridy. Police heard gunshots after about half an hour and entered the hotel, with Meridy shooting a police officer wearing a bulletproof vest. Police returned fire and struck and killed the suspect.
Authorities found Kenyatta Wright badly beaten and with a gunshot wound to the arm, but she is expected to recover.
The investigation into the incident continues.
