Waiting for the breakneck coverage from the Liberal Media on this. I will not hold my breath; least I turn blue and die.
State police at the Corunna post have confirmed a well-known anti-abortion activist was shot multiple times and killed this morning in front of Owosso High School.
The victim’s identity has not yet been released but the shooting occurred around 7:30 a.m., after most students were off the buses and safely inside the building, said Owosso schools transportation supervisor Jayne Campbell.
State police also confirmed that a suspect was taken into custody about 8:15 a.m. at the suspect’s home.
Owosso High School secretary Wendy Smith said the students remain in lockdown this morning and confirmed that no students were involved and all are safe with classes going on as normal. The shooting did not occur on school property, Smith said.
Meanwhile, police have completely ringed with police tape a section of North Street in front of the school.
A black car can be seen parked at the corner of North and Whitehaven streets, where a portable oxygen tank is lying in a front yard next to a large sign bearing the image of a baby and the word “Life.”
For what it is worth; the man was 63 years old. I am glad that the suspect was caught; also there was another murder, that took place that was carried about by the same suspect. I believe it would be a bit premature to speculate whether the murder was related to his advocacy or not. So, I will speculate on this. But I will say that, if this had been an abortion doctor; it would have been front page news. I am even suprised that Fox News is not even covering it. They are too busy playing 9/11 footage over and over and over.
Update: As I suspected and as it was already reported, but now confirmed in the media. The suspect was angry with this man’s opposition to Abortion: (A HUGE H/T to HotAir.com!)

A 33-year-old Michigan man has been charged with murder in the shootings this morning of an anti-abortion protester outside a high school and the owner of a gravel company found dead in his office.
Harlan Drake of Owosso, near Lansing, was arraigned on two counts of first-degree murder and other gun-related crimes. Prosecutors said Drake also had planned to kill a third, unidentified person.
Longtime anti-abortion activist James Pouillon, 63, was shot multiple times from a passing car about 7:20 a.m. ET. He was protesting across the street from Owosso High School as students were arriving for classes. Witnesses, including students, provided the gunman’s license plate.
About the same time Mike Fuoss, 61, was found dead in his office at Fuoss Gravel in Owosso Township.
Drake was arrested at home about an hour later. Police said he stated he had also shot Fuoss.
“The indication is that he had ill will … a grudge against these three individuals,” said Shiawassee County Prosecutor Randy Colbry. “The defendant was offended by the manner of Mr. Pouillon’s message.”
Still waiting for that Statement from Obama condemning this murder. Still waiting for the outrage amongst the Liberals and the wall to wall coverage of the Liberal MSM. I won’t hold my breath; least I turn blue and die.
