Kalamazoo County police say self defense may have led to slaying of Cooper Township man
ALAMO TOWNSHIP -- Kalamazoo County police are investigating whether the fatal shooting of a 40-year-old man by a relative Thursday may have been a case of self-defense.
A witness to the shooting told police that John Millard Stafford Jr., of Cooper Township, was making threats and had forced his way into a house in the 6000 block of West C Avenue in Alamo Township before he was shot by a family member, said Capt. Mike Bowen of the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office.
Bowen said Stafford had arrived at the residence with an acquaintance, according to the witness, before he forced his way inside and was shot.
