A 17-year-old Highland Township resident was walking near 1050 Middle Road when a young white male allegedly came up to him with a sawed-off shotgun and threatened to “blow the victim’s head” off before running off toward the nearby woods, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department.
The suspect , a 16-year-old from Milford, was found during a K-9 search of the nearby area and was arrested and transported to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department Highland Township Substation.
Deputies then found a 20-gauge shotgun in a garbage can. The shotgun’s barrel was pointing up, and the shotgun was loaded and cocked, according to deputies.
The suspect has been lodged in Children’s Village with charges pending.
