      Man attacks brother, sister-in-law, shoots self

      Authorities say a man broke into his brother and sister-in-law's rural northern Michigan home and attacked them with a rifle, then shot himself in the head after they fled.

      State police from the Houghton Lake post got a call Friday night to a home in Kalkaska County's Garfield Township. It's about 30 miles east-southeast of Traverse City.

      State police say a 58-year-old man broke into the house and attacked his brother and sister-in-law, then barricaded himself inside.

      State police say a tactical unit surveillance robot later found the man's body on a rear porch with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
