OWOSSO, Mich. — A Michigan school official says a man who was a well-known anti-abortion activist was shot and killed near a high school.I wonder how much national brow-furrowing there will be about the threads of deadly violence woven through the pro-choice community? I wonder if Franky Schaeffer will bust out a lengthy apology for his new friends, the way he did for his old ones a while back?
Business manager for Owosso Public Schools Julie Omer says the shooting took place around 7:20 a.m. Friday. She said police told school officials a suspect was taken into custody. No students were injured.
Michigan State Police have not officially released the victim's identity.
But Omer says police disclosed to school officials the identity of the man, who is often seen carrying signs with anti-abortion slogans. She stressed that police are not making any connection between his views and the shooting.
