Police seek public assistance in establishing Munising shooting timeline

Michigan State Police are turning to the public for help in establishing a timeline of events leading up to last Monday’s shooting incident in Munising.

Detectives from the Negaunee Post are asking anyone who came into contact with Timothy Mitchell during the day of the altercation to contact them. Detective Sergeant Paul Campbell or Detective Sergeant Chris Croley can be reached at 906-475-9922.
