Read Judge Ayoub’s motion to bindover former GRPD Officer Christopher Schurr for trial in the homicide of Patrick Lyoya below.
Key evidence was elicited by attorneys, including that Schurr was not fired due to any actions taken during the arrest or killing and instead faced termination because of charges being brought by the prosecution. It was also further determined that Lyoya disarmed Schurr of the taser and transferred it to his dominant hand while lifting Schurr ‘s feet off the ground.
The Saginaw Valley State University student newspaper is reporting that police were called just after 8pm on Thursday night regarding a faculty member in distress at the school’s Science West building. Police remain on campus as of Friday morning and little else is known at this time.
Police spokespeople have issued a directive to students and staff to avoid the following buildings: Science West, Pioneer Hall and Zahnow Library. Police have ruled out the involvement of any SVSU student at this time and the ongoing issue seems to be limited to just the lone faculty member.
We will update this story as more details are released.
