|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||2|
CASTLETON TWP, MI – The daughter of a fallen police officer, Samantha Minehart, was tending to her horse in the family barn when a man walked up behind her, put a knife to her throat, and told her “not to do anything stupid”. Despite her compliance, the man started stabbing her, once in the stomach and once in the leg, resulting in the need for multiple stitches.
Minehart wasn’t taken totally by surprise though. Her family had been attacked on their land before, and she was ready. Minehart drew a gun that she was carrying for personal protection and fired two shots at the suspect, who then fled.
Police responded, set up a permiter and tried to use dogs to locate the suspect, but he remains at large.
Minehart is the daughter of Officer John Minehart, known as “Spike”, who died in 2008 from health complications after being hit in the line of duty in 1991.
I think it’s pretty clear an innocent life was saved by a gun here.
