Michigan ‘Doomsday Prepper’ Dies After Setting Fire To House

According to WSBT.com and the South Bend Tribune, a Michigan man went on a shooting spree Saturday night, leaving nearby homes riddled with bullet holes.

That was followed by an apparent standoff ending with the gunman supposedly setting fire to his home and turning the weapon on himself.

Neighbors described the man as a “doomsday prepper.”  Michigan State Police say it all unfolded at a home in a mobile home park.

A fire combined with what some eyewitnesses say was the sound of thousands of rounds of gunfire going off inside one trailer, almost sounding like 4th of July fireworks. The smell of gunpowder was thick in the air.

When the smoke finally cleared police found one man dead inside.

The first complaint was about shots fired, but it turned into so much more.

When troopers arrived, they did hear gunshots and then saw smoke and later flames, which engulfed the home and apparently started setting off ammunition explosions inside.

The only death was that of the shooter.
