On scene two victims were located who advised that a male and a female known to them had fired shots at them. The shots did not strike the victims. Officers Balasko and Grocholski located both suspects, a handgun and spent shell casings.

In May 2011 Flint Police took a report of a Home Invasion in which the suspect robbed the residents and sexually assaulted one resident . A recent submission of evidence for DNA analysis resulted in the identification of a suspect. That suspect, Michael Coleman (34), has since been arrested, charged and arraigned for 2 counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct 1st Degree, Armed Robbery, Home Invasion 1st Degree, 2 counts of Unlawful Imprisonment and Felonious Assault.
