The Detroit News - - News - Staff and wire re­ports

East Lans­ing — Po­lice say a Michi­gan State Uni­ver­sity stu­dent from Texas has been fa­tally shot dur­ing a fight at an off-cam­pus stu­dent apart­ment com­plex.

East Lans­ing po­lice say the 22-year-old man was pro­nounced dead early Fri­day at a hos­pi­tal. Po­lice ini­tially said he wasn’t a stu­dent. His name and home­town weren’t im­me­di­ately re­leased.

Po­lice had re­sponded to a call about shots fired when he was found shot. Po­lice say they don’t think there’s an im­me­di­ate dan­ger to the pub­lic.

The apart­ment com­plex is lo­cated about 2 miles north of the Michi­gan State Uni­ver­sity cam­pus. The shoot­ing is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Judge bars McPhail from en­ter­ing school

De­troit — A Wayne County Cir­cuit judge on Fri­day granted a tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der for a De­troit char­ter school seek­ing to keep Sharon McPhail from manag­ing busi­ness op­er­a­tions there af­ter she re­fused to leave.

The re­strain­ing or­der, is­sued by Wayne County Cir­cuit Judge Craig Strong, pro­hibits McPhail from ex­er­cis­ing any author­ity over the op­er­a­tions of De­troit Com­mu­nity Schools, en­ter­ing the school prop­erty or in­ter­fer­ing with the op­er­a­tion of its newly ap­pointed con­ser­va­tor, Nancy Berkom­pas.

McPhail was ter­mi­nated af­ter re­fus­ing to ob­tain state cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to be su­per­in­ten­dent at the school within three years of tak­ing the po­si­tion in 2012, school of­fi­cials said.

The same day, the school’s au­tho­rizer, Bay Mills Com­mu­nity Col­lege, in­stalled Berkom­pas, a for­mer teacher and school su­per­in­ten­dent, as con­ser­va­tor.

McPhail, an at­tor­ney and past De­troit coun­cil­woman, is the for­mer su­per­in­ten­dent of the char­ter school.

In 2016, the Michi­gan De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion ruled the char­ter school was em­ploy­ing a chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer who was not prop­erly cer­ti­fied. The ed­u­ca­tion de­part­ment fined the school and or­dered it to com­ply with state law.

The fines reached more than $200,000 as the school ap­pealed the rul­ing.

The school, in a mo­tion filed Thurs­day, is de­mand­ing McPhail im­me­di­ately re­turn ac­cess to the school’s prop­erty, bank ac­counts and records in her cus­tody or con­trol.

The re­strain­ing or­der is in ef­fect un­til 11 a.m. Tues­day when McPhail is sched­uled to ap­pear at a hear­ing where she must show cause as to why the re­straint should be lifted.

The char­ter school, founded in 1997, serves more than 650 stu­dents in grades K-12 and is in the Bright­moor neigh­bor­hood.
