Shooting suspect cuts arm in jail

September 13, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A jailed trucker charged with gunning down two people, including an antiabortion protester, cut his arm in an apparent suicide attempt, prosecutors said. They also said that the man's mother once worked with another intended victim.

Harlan James Drake, 33, was taken to a hospital with a self-inflicted wound near his wrist. "He attempted suicide. It sounds like he's going to make it, but it's a serious gash, a very serious wound to his arm," Shiawassee County Prosecutor Randy Colbry said.

Protester James Pouillon, 63, was killed in a drive-by shooting Friday near Owosso High School; the owner of a gravel company, Mike Fuoss, 61, was fatally shot at work. Authorities said real estate agent James Howe was a third intended target, but that Drake's capture at home ended the spree.
